UNICEF's Education Cannot Wait (ECW) has announced a 165-million-dollar grant for three years to provide education to 746,000 children affected by crises in Ethiopia. ECW has earmarked 27 million dollars as seed funding to address the educational needs of 60,487 of the most vulnerable children IDPs, returnees and children from host communities in Amhara, Oromia and Somali regional states. Part of the funding will be used to support efforts to mobilise the funding gap of 138 million dollars needed for the whole programme. The funding will be used for children left behind because of violence, drought, displacement and other crises. The Ministry of Education will lead the programme in partnership with Save the Children International, UNICEF's Education Cannot Wait and the education cluster of the organisation.
