GRF Education Alliance

Education is an essential component in building strong, resilient communities and supporting the holistic development of children and youth so that they can become active, engaged and contributing members of their local communities. The Global Refugee Forum (GRF) Education Alliance is a network of over 160 stakeholders that have a passionate interest in ensuring that refugees of all ages have access to education opportunities.

The Education Alliance enables hosting states, donor states and organisations, civil society organisations, academics and academic institutions, United Nations agencies and refugee led organisations to work collaboratively in pledging actions that will promote the inclusion of refugee learners in national educational systems and institutions. It also offers opportunities for sharing information on planned pledges, engaging in joint advocacy and encouraging solidarity with hosting states to realise the right to education.

During 2023 the Alliance will hold quarterly virtual meetings to prepare for the Global Refugee Forum. Within the Alliance there are a number of thematic task teams which allow for more in-depth discussion needs and planned pledges.

If your organization is interested in joining the Education Alliance, please send an email to [email protected] with a little information about your organization and interest in the GRF.
