Refugee Education Initiatives
We believe that education is transformational and can create better lives for learners, their families, their communities, and the world.
Childhood Education International is committed to the vision of ensuring quality education for refugees and inclusion in national education systems.
We pledge to provide support and resources for refugee education in a variety of displacement, migration, and emergency contexts over the next five years. Learn about our international refugee education pledges.
