    What concrete actions have you taken in support of the initiative.

    As member of the Education Cannot Wait (ECW) High-Level Steering Group and Executive Committee, Save the Children represents the voice of Civil Society Organisations in ECW strategy discussions. In this capacity, Save the Children helps ensuring the smooth and effective operation of the Fund.

    Save the Children has supported ECW Secretariat missions to countries including Uganda, Bangladesh and Afghanistan by providing pre-visit briefings and contextual knowledge, and by convening key actors during the visits.

    Through strategic fundraising, Save the Children has raised USD 6.9 million towards ECW projects in Syria, Somalia, Ukraine, Afghanistan, Uganda, Nepal and Bangladesh. Save the Children is currently responsible for implementing two-thirds of the total ECW project portfolio that serve children in crisis.

    As co-leader of the Global Education Cluster, Save the Children assists operationalization of ECW at field level. This includes fostering coordination and providing access through existing channels, thus boosting local ownership.
