The Safe to Learn coalition is made up of 14 partner organizations that believe every child has the right to be safe and secure in school so that they can learn, grow, and develop the skills and confidence they need to lead healthy and fulfilling lives. A year ago, the Safe to Learn coalition agreed on a strategic roadmap that sets out in high-level terms what needs to happen to make this vision a reality.
As the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted and continues to disrupt many aspects of children’s lives around the world, including access to education and child protection services, and children are at increased risk of experiencing violence, it is clear that the mandate of Safe to Learn is now more important than ever.
Through the roadmap, partners committed to collective and individual actions. This document provides an overview of progress against the roadmap over the past year, and reflects the agility of partners who have had to adapt and adjust their work to address the challenges that have resulted from the COVID-19 pandemic.
