Prioritize investments in global education for refugees
Support Education for Refugees
Education Cannot Wait (ECW), the UN’s global fund for education in emergencies and protracted crises, will host a High-Level Financing Conference from February 16-17, 2023 in Geneva – co-convened with the governments of Colombia, Germany, Niger, Norway, South Sudan, and Switzerland – to mobilize $1.5 billion in support of its 2023-2026 Strategic Plan. With an intended pledge of at least $158 million over four years, the U.S. Government can commit to financing quality, inclusive, and transformative education for over 222 million children and adolescents living in crisis and conflict settings around the world.
