Education can change a child’s life - offering learning and skills that can free a child from poverty and create a brighter future.
But too many children are missing out on vital schooling. And Covid-19 means millions of the world’s poorest young people may never return to the classroom.
Missing out on school doesn’t just mean missing lessons. It affects a child for life. Children are more exposed to abuse and violence, forced to marry or work and unable to escape a cycle of poverty.
That’s why we’re calling on world leaders to fund safe, quality schooling for all children and young people. Please help us ensure all children can get the education they need and have hope of a better future.
