“The chance of an education is a chance to escape poverty, to improve health and to enhance opportunities.”
Educate A Child (EAC) supports the hardest-to-reach out of school children (OOSC) around the world facing barriers to education including poverty, discrimination, conflict, challenging geographies and climate change.
EAC and its partners scale up existing education projects in support of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal of achieving quality education for all by 2030.
EAA’s Educate A Child is built around a uniquely flexible model. EAC’s local and national partners tailor their grassroots solutions to the needs of OOSC in their communities and countries, and in line with predefined goals and success metrics. This allows EAC to adjust its programming and bridge formal with non-formal education approaches, thereby reaching and engaging OOSC no matter their geography, circumstances or context.
While in addition to maintaining support for its existing OOSC education interventions, EAC has committed to reaching an additional 1 million children each year and implemented the forward-looking At-Risk Initiative to help prevent vulnerable children from dropping out of education. Furthermore, EAC’s ZERO Strategy aims to work with countries that have a demonstrated commitment to UPE and bring their remaining primary OOSC populations into quality education.
