As part of the Humanity Hub’s second seasonal programming theme, focusing on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we will share insights by members of the Humanity Hub community and the Hague Peace & Justice ecosystem. This week, we are spotlighting how War Child‘s evidence-based, scalable education programmes ensure equitable access to quality education.


In the current climate of increasingly protracted crises and forced displacement, there is growing demand for evidence-based, scalable education programmes. Can’t Wait to Learn – the War Child-led education-technology programme – is one example. New research is set to support its efforts to ensure equitable access to quality education.

War Child Holland is a recipient of a Knowledge and Innovation Exchange (KIX) global grant that is a joint initiative from the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) and the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), aiming to connect expertise, innovation and knowledge to support low- and middle-income countries to build stronger education systems and accelerate progress toward SDG 4. The research is currently being carried out in Uganda, Sudan and Chad in partnership with national research institutes, programme experts and national Ministries of Education.
