    Fighting against poverty

    Communication activities

    The campaign "Every Child. Everywhere. In School" is a global movement to ensure that every child and teenager, everywhere, attends school and completes their education so they can fulfil their full potential. Every child, everywhere, has the right to an education. Unfortunately, 244 million children around the world are currently denied this right. A child who is out of school is more vulnerable to human traffickers and recruitment by militias and at an increased risk of early marriage, teen pregnancy, and child labour. We want to extend the life-changing power of education to the most disadvantaged children – children in conflict zones, children in remote areas, children living in extreme poverty, and children who face discrimination because of their gender, disability, or ethnicity.
    To open the doors to education, we organise education summits: Education Accelerators and Education Incubators. The EDUCATION SUMMITs aim to provide a platform for international and cross-cultural dialogue with European decision-makers and people (especially children) from different parts of the world. Representatives of diverse communities can contribute to a broad vision for educational excellence and equity for all children and youth.

    The three aims of the summits are:
    a) To examine the key challenges facing access to education around the globe;
    b) To promote visionary thinking about making education accessible for all children;
    c) To explore a specific aspect of faith communities as local actors to bring every child, everywhere, in school.

    Action STEPS:
    1) BRING TOGETHER experts in education, social innovators, investors in education, European decision-makers, people from faith-based organisations (FBOs) and other civil society organisations (CSOs), out-of-school children and teens, parents …
    2) EXPLORE possible solutions and the role of FBOs in access to quality education.
    3) ACCELERATE and promote solutions and good practices.
