GCE-US and Partners Applaud New Funding
Exciting news! The U.S. committed $37 million to Education Cannot Wait (ECW) to ensure children and youth in emergencies have access to education. The new $37 million contribution complements $38 million in U.S. contributions since 2016 for a total of more than $75 million, nearly doubling U.S. government support. These funds will help accelerate the impact of ECW’s education in emergencies investments, which have already reached more than 4.6 million crisis-affected children and adolescents. ECW’s COVID-19 response has reached an additional 29.2 million vulnerable girls and boys in 32 countries.
Your advocacy and partnership make a difference every day -- thank you for your vital support of education for all!
