Doha – At today’s World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) in Doha, hosted and attended by Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, the Chairperson of Education Above All Foundation, world leaders called for action to help young refugees and internally displaced youths. With more than 260 million children and adolescents not in school today, and only 1% of young refugees able to access higher education, the world will not achieve the Sustainable Development Goals if young people are denied quality educational opportunities.
During the 72ND UNGA, Education Above All Foundation has announced three new projects in Syria with US UNICEF; Pakistan with UNESCO and Angola with RISE International.
Extended partnership with UNICEF USA will reach 95,000 children affected by the Syrian crisis, with co-financing from the Qatar Fund for Development, bringing the total number of children reached by EAA to 1.2 million.
Education Above All Foundation is a member of the UNESCO 2030 Steering Committee representing Foundations to enable Sustainable Development Goal 4.
