Achieving Breakthroughs in Education: Key achievements in 2013

Education is one of Save the Children’s global priorities. Good quality education brings hope and opportunities for children to transform their lives; it helps to tackle poverty and improve health, and educated children are more likely to educate their own children. Two priority areas are education for children affected by humanitarian crisis and improving the overall quality of education so that children really learn when they attend school. 

This document presents an overview of the many types of education programmes that Save the Children maintained across the globe in 2013. Save the Children’s approach is governed by four goals:

Innovate - to develop evidence-based, replicable solutions to the problems children face

Achieve results at scale - by expanding effective and sustainable approaches

Use our voice to give others a voice - to advocate and campaign for better practices and policies to fulfill children’s rights and ensure their voices are heard and taken seriously

Work in partnership with others - children, communities, governments, civil society and private sector organizations, in increase impact

In acknowledgment of the importance of accountability, Save the Children introduced the Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability and Learning (MEAL) approach in 2013. MEAL emphasizes the collection and use of data to support decision making, accountability, and continual improvement of programs and activities. This approach was used to evaluate, improve, and influence education programming in 2013.
