Who We Are
Education has an incredible power
Education has an incredible power it can transform the life of a child but also the society as a whole. It can make people and nations healthier and wealthier, empower women and bring social change, hope, equity and employment.
The Schools for Asia Initiative aims to do just that – to help build a world where every child can grow up to be healthy, protected from harm, and educated so they can reach their full potential. It works to provide means and shape policies allowing children to enrol and stay in school.
Launched in 2012, the School for Asia support the UNICEF education programme in 11 countries in Asia in four programme areas: early learning, quality learning, equity and education in emergencies. Thanks to this support over 40 million children had access to a better education.
