Education is a fundamental right for every child, yet the number of children whose education is affected by crisis has increased significantly. 

An estimated 222 million kids worldwide are missing a quality education that would shape and determine their futures. They need urgent educational support.

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.

With a 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.
