Dubai Cares is a UAE-based global philanthropic organisation that works towards providing children and youth in developing countries with access to quality education. Since its inception in 2007, the organisation has successfully launched education programs reaching over 20 million beneficiaries in 60 developing countries. Dubai Cares also plays a key role in helping achieve the UN SDG4 on quality education.
The Accelerated Education Working Group (AEWG) is an inter-agency working group comprised of partners working in accelerated education. The AEWG is led by UNHCR and is made up of the following education partners supporting and/or funding AE programming: European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations Department (ECHO), Education Development Center (EDC), International Rescue Committee (IRC), Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC), Plan International, Save the Children, UNESCO, UNICEF, United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and War Child Holland. The AEWG brings agencies together to share experiences and expertise in accelerated education and provides an opportunity for dialogue around a more harmonised, standardised approach to accelerated education programming and policy.
The Inter-agency Network for Education in Emergencies (INEE) is an open, global network of members working together within a humanitarian and development framework to ensure that all individuals have the right to a quality, safe, relevant, and equitable education. INEE’s work is founded on the fundamental right to education.
The Evidence for Education in Emergencies (E-Cubed) Research Fund aims to strengthen the evidence base in EiE, by supporting contextually relevant and usable research, and disseminating global public goods. Dubai Cares partnered with INEE in 2017 to design and manage this research fund.
