Join us to make an impact on education in sub-Saharan Africa, reaching the most vulnerable children.
How you can support through Schools for Africa
UNICEF believes the private sector isn’t a postscript; it must be part of the solution to the continent’s education challenges. While implications of population growth can be daunting, the private sector can mobilize the “youth bulge” into an economic and social dividend.
A broad range of partners – philanthropists, foundations, businesses, and individuals – can make investments at regional and country levels, catalyzing sustainable solutions, and systemic change that will create a more equitable planet for all.
Schools for Africa is designed to ensure that quality education and learning outcomes will have a significant impact on the progress and development of the focus countries and that the contributions of UNICEF and its partners will achieve the greatest positive impact on the lives and well-being of children.
You can invest thematically
By investing thematically at a regional or country level in quality education, and asking UNICEF to allocate your contribution where the need is greatest and the return on investment is highest. Over the long term, this enables a region to ‘move the needle’ on results for children in the most effective and efficient way.
You can develop partnerships
By working with UNICEF to develop a partnership within the overall Schools for Africa scope in a subregion or country. Support can include both financial and non-financial resources, advocacy efforts, technical expertise, and more.
For every child: The power to transform.
