The Education thematic area brings together our thematic education work to Save the Children members, Country Offices, and other parts of our movement under one global umbrella across both humanitarian and development contexts.

 We unite people from across the movement to share knowledge, discuss new ideas, harmonize approaches, and promote collaboration to improve the quality of our programming and advocacy across the globe.

Across the world, the most deprived, marginalized, and disadvantaged children are the most affected by the learning crisis, such as those caught up in emergencies, facing extreme poverty, or discriminated against because of their gender, disability, ethnicity, or religion.  More than half the world's school-aged children are not learning. We believe that all children- including the most deprived and marginalized- have the right to a quality basic education. Our key areas of focus in this regard are:

  • Basic Education
  • Education in Emergencies
  • Early childhood care and development
  • School health and nutrition; education technology
  • Mental Health and Psychosocial Support
  • Advocacy and policy.
