About EAA

Opening up a world of education

Children love to learn. If they are denied access to knowledge, we also deny them the opportunity to change their lives for the better.


How Al Fakhoora Works

Only five per cent of refugee youth worldwide have access to higher education, but a degree is no longer enough. There already exists a ‘lost generation’ whose educational needs are not being addressed. The ramifications of not providing them with an opportunity to further skill and educate themselves only adds to the cycle of poverty created by conflict and forced migration.

More than just a scholarship

Al Fakhoora believes in the innate resilience of youth, and works to enable the most marginalised, particularly refugees and Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), to reach their maximum potential, despite their surrounding circumstances, by removing barriers and facilitating access to quality, relevant higher education. We place beneficiaries at the heart of our programming, tailoring each intervention to address the obstacles and challenges that they face within the economic, social and cultural context in which they live.

SDG 4.3 By 2030, ensure equal access for all women and men to affordable and quality technical, vocational and tertiary education, including university.
