Save the Children UK

More than 75 million children across crisis and conflict-affected countries require urgent support to receive a quality education. More than half of the world’s school-aged refugee children – four million – are out of school, with those that are in school often receiving an education that is poor quality. This UK civil society report (Send My Friend to School campaign in collaboration with Bond, Global Citizen, Theirworld and War Child UK) calls upon the UK government to strengthen its leadership in education in emergencies and protracted crises by actioning our four-point plan.

  1. More & better funding
  2. Increase support to teachers in crises
  3. Support the Global Compact on Refugees
  4. Reaching the hardest-to-reach adolescent girls

The report calls on the UK to make a renewed commitment to Education Cannot Wait of £75 million over the period 2019-2021.
