Our Investments

Girls in class in Afghanistan.
As the global, billion-dollar fund for education in emergencies and protracted crises, Education Cannot Wait (ECW) supports and protects holistic learning outcomes – so no girl or boy is left behind.

Where We Work

ECW funds are invested in countries and contexts affected by emergencies and protracted crises – including armed conflicts, forced displacement, climate change-induced disasters and epidemics.


Funding Windows

ECW financial investments support country-level implementation through two financing windows: Multi-Year Resilience Programme (MYRP) and First Emergency Response (FER). ECW also has a third, smaller funding stream to support global goods called the Acceleration Facility (AF).

Information for Grantees

Access up-to-date country-level MYRP and FER coordination information, reporting requirements and other important resources for current grantees.
