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.

“The chance of an education is a chance to escape poverty, to improve health and to enhance opportunities.”

Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser

Our Objective

Educate A Child (EAC) supports the hardest-to-reach out of school children (OOSC) around the world facing barriers to education including poverty, discrimination, conflict, challenging geographies and climate change. 

EAC and its partners scale up existing education projects in support of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal of achieving quality education for all by  2030.

Our Work 

EAA’s Educate A Child is built around a uniquely flexible model. EAC’s local and national partners tailor their grassroots solutions to the needs of OOSC in their communities and countries, and in line with predefined goals and success metrics. This allows EAC to adjust its programming and bridge formal with non-formal education approaches, thereby reaching and engaging OOSC no matter their geography, circumstances or context.

Way Forward

While in addition to maintaining support for its existing OOSC education interventions, EAC has committed to reaching an additional 1 million children each year and implemented the forward-looking At-Risk Initiative to help prevent vulnerable children from dropping out of education. Furthermore, EAC’s ZERO Strategy aims to work with countries that have a demonstrated commitment to UPE and bring their remaining primary OOSC populations into quality education.

Impact

"Humanity will not overcome the immense challenges we face unless we ensure that children get the quality education that equips them to play their part in the modern world." -- HH Sheikha Moza bint Nasser
