IBE-UNESCO joins the accelerated education initiative

Details

The IBE joins the accelerated education initiative to push forward with equity of quality education for millions of children and youth who are not yet reached by education and learning providers.

More than 263 million children and young people are currently out of school with 62.5 million living in conflict affected countries. The most vulnerable and marginalised – often displaced children and young people, ex-combatants, girls, and
children with disabilities frequently miss out on substantial amounts of schooling. With each missed school year, there is greater risk that they will be unable to return to formal education and greater risks to their protection as a result.
Accelerated Education provides a path back to certification and opportunities to transition into the formal education system. It is therefore a vital strategy to support the Sustainable Development Goals and initiatives such as Education Cannot Wait.

Event: LAUNCH OF GUIDANCE MATERIALS FOR ACCELERATED EDUCATION
Date: 3 October 2017
Time: 11:30am – 1:00pm
Location: EDC, 1025 Thomas Jefferson Street NW, Suite 700 West, Washington, DC 20007
