Learning by Heart announces official partnership with Education Cannot Wait global fund
Education Cannot Wait becomes our second partner organisation and going forward will receive 50% of the proceeds from Learning by Heart.
5th September 2021 - We are incredibly proud to be celebrating the International Day of Charity by announcing our new partnership with Education Cannot Wait (ECW), the United Nations global fund for education in emergencies and protracted crises. ECW supports and protects holistic learning outcomes for refugee, internally displaced and other crisis-affected girls and boys, so no one is left behind.
Since its inception in May 2020, Learning by Heart has committed to use the proceeds from our pay-as-you-feel tutoring services to support larger organisations, who work globally in the field of education. At our core, Learning by Heart is an initiative that fights for educational rights for all young people across the world.
When we reached our initial fundraising goal of £1000 back in February this year, we decided to choose an additional organisation to support with our proceeds. We chose ECW because their mission and values resonate with our own and we were inspired by the impact it has had in over 30 crisis-affected countries across the globe. We and our community of students take great pride in the fact that for every lesson delivered, another child’s education benefits.
“With an increasing number of children and youth being affected by armed conflicts, the climate crisis, forced displacement and COVID-19, innovative partnerships are more than ever crucial to fulfill the right of every single girl and boy to access quality education. Learning by Heart’s model of providing learning opportunities at a local level to benefit education at a global level is inspiring. Education Cannot Wait is grateful for their support and, together, we will work to ensure that every child – regardless of the challenges they may face – has equitable access to a safe, holistic education,” Yasmine Sherif, Director of Education Cannot Wait.
We are thrilled to be able to work with ECW and are excited about what the future holds for this partnership. As Learning by Heart continues to grow as a community of tutors and learners in the UK, it is incredibly meaningful to develop partnerships with global funds like ECW so we can expand our reach both at home and further afield.
We’re incredibly grateful for all the support given to us by ECW throughout this period, and we look forward to a meaningful and productive partnership as we move forward into the future of Learning by Heart.
