USD 20M Granted by the QFFD to Support Education Cannot Wait (ECW)

The UN's worldwide fund to promote education in times of catastrophes and protracted crises, Education Cannot Wait (ECW), has received a contribution of $20 million from the Qatar Fund for Development (QFFD).

Khalifa bin Jassim Al Kuwari, the director general of the QFFD, announced on Thursday that it supports projects that have been mutually decided upon with the Educate A Child (EAC) program of the Education Above All Foundation (EAA).

Speaking at the ECW High-Level Financing Conference (HLFC), which began on Thursday in Geneva, Al Kuwari praised education as the driving force behind human advancement, the foundation of economic and social progress, and the key to a fair and peaceful society for everyone. He emphasized the significance of prompt joint action by all world leaders to contribute to making the dreams of 222 million people a reality.

Fahad Al Sulaiti, CEO of the Education Above All Foundation, stated that collaboration will ensure that all students, especially those in underserved and difficult-to-reach communities, are enrolled in school. He said, "High-quality education is the engine of human development, which is something essential for reducing inequality, promoting well-being, and building lasting peace and security. For this reason, the EAA aspires to work in partnership with the QFFD and the ECW Fund to achieve the goals of not leaving any child behind."

The global educational system will be improved by the combined efforts of the QFFD, EAA, and ECW as well as other contributors.
