Africa Educational Trust

Africa Educational Trust reaches over a quarter of a million children and adults every year, providing education to people affected by conflict and poverty.

Millions of children miss out on education every year in Somalia, South Sudan, Uganda and Kenya because of ongoing conflict and extreme poverty. Education is a right for all children, and a child’s best chance at a better future. This is why Africa Educational Trust support building education systems that give all children the chance to learn as well as providing educational opportunities for people who have missed their chance to go to school.

Did you know...

1 in 4 children living in a conflict area is out-of-school and 24 million children world-wide are currently out-of-school because of conflict. However, less than 2% of humanitarian aid goes to support education.

A girl in South Sudan is more likely to die in childbirth than finish primary school. Education of women is a key factor identified by the World Health Organisation in reducing under-5 mortality.

Every year of education a child receives improves their future income, food security, and health. In addition, World Bank studies shows that every year of education reduces risk of conflict and violence.
