Alternative Education in DRC: A Path to Reach Out-of-School Children and Youth

775 million children and youth in 35 conflict-affected countries are left behind in the global drive towards Education for All. The human, social, and economic costs are staggering, not least since these young people are at risk for recruitment into gangs and insurgent militias, and for girls, early forced marriages and sexual trafficking.

The global initiative Education Cannot Wait is based on the recognition that assuring education for these children and youth requires a shift in approaches to provide a path back into education for those excluded as a consequence of crisis and conflict. Read more  »

Accelerated Education Programs Literature Review and Brief

USAID, with NORC at the University of Chicago, has produced an important new study,  Accelerated Education Programs in Crisis and Conflict: Building Evidence and Learning.  This thorough literature review provides insight into a critical global issue: As of 2013, almost 50 million primary- and lower- secondary-school-aged children have been deprived of an education through the impact of crisis and/or conflict.
