The Education Cluster envisions a world in which all those affected by humanitarian crisis have equitable access to education in a safe and protective environment.
The Education Cluster
The Education Cluster is an open formal forum for coordination and collaboration on education in humanitarian crises. The Education Cluster brings together NGOs, UN agencies, academics, and other partners under the shared goal of ensuring predictable, well coordinated and equitable provision of education for populations affected by humanitarian crises.
Established in 2007 by the IASC as part of the cluster approach, the Education Cluster works to uphold education as a basic human right and core component of humanitarian response. The Education Cluster is the only cluster co-led at global level by a UN agency and a NGO: UNICEF and Save the Children.
