Education Above All (EAA) is a foundation founded in 2012 by Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser. Its aim is to build a global movement that contributes to human, social and economic development through the provision of quality education. With a particular focus on those affected by poverty, conflict and disaster, it champions the needs of children, youth and women to empower them to become active members of their communities.
The challenge is immense, but it is matched by positivity and determination. By pooling resources, forging partnerships and sharing innovative ideas, we are making huge strides forward. During the first six months of our operation, we reached 600,000 out of school children. Today, we have commitments to enrol 6 million out of school children.
The projects span primary education, access and enrolment, higher education and wider concerns such as the health, wellbeing and basic rights. These are the issues that will support human development and offer people in need a chance to build a brighter future.
