Education Above All Foundation
Based in Doha, Qatar, Education Above All Foundation was founded by official decision on 17 October 2012. Our aim is to build a global movement that contributes to human, social and economic development through quality education and other welfare programmes and initiatives. With a particular focus on areas affected by poverty, conflict, and disaster, we will champion the needs of children and women and empower them to be active members of their communities. By meeting the demand for education, we will equip them to support sustainable development and to nurture environments of peace, security, justice, and prosperity.
Education Above All Foundation through its advocacy program Protect Education during Insecurity and Conflict (PEIC) advocates in defense of education when it is most at risk and also most vital. PEIC also promotes the 2030 Agenda by safeguarding inclusive and quality education for all that is the foundation to improving people's lives and sustainable development.
PEIC undertakes multi-lateral diplomacy and advocacy initiatives that safeguard the right to education. Our work with UN human rights, judicial mechanisms, and strategic litigation will hold accountable those who perpetrate attacks on education. PEIC is committed to research and thought-leadership that brings global attention to the harm caused to education by war, conflict, and insecurity.
