Global Fund for Children supports local organizations in Central and South America, sub-Saharan Africa, and South Asia that are helping kids who have experienced pandemic-related education disruptions access and thrive in learning environments that prepare them for future success. The Partnership to Educate All Kids (PEAK) initiative is supported by the LEGO Foundation. It fosters the learning and development of children aged 6 to 12 by enabling local organizations to sustain or expand their work; developing capacity to integrate learning through play; and strengthening networks for advocacy and learning so that community-based organizations can connect, exchange learnings, and share innovations.
The PEAK initiative provides core flexible funding and capacity development support to 66 community-based organizations, listed below, that are reaching 100,000 children around the world who are facing barriers to educational success that have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. The initiative also provides emergency grants to GFC partners to address unmet community needs that impact educational success. You can find a list of the GFC partners who have received emergency grants through this initiative here.
