Mobilizing 1M African Voices for Education with $1

In Africa, access to quality education remains a challenge for millions of children and youth, limiting their opportunities for personal growth and socioeconomic advancement. Recognizing the power of collective action, we propose a bold initiative to mobilize One Million Africans to commit just $1 each, pooling our resources to create a tangible impact on educational opportunities across the continent in the new ECI’s strategic plan 2025 – 2029.

Education in Crisis’ $1 commitment campaign is a fundraising campaign with a goal to reach One Million Africans to commit to supporting children’s education by committing $1 so that EIC can send back up to 100,000 out of school children by 2025. EIC’s founding principle is mobilizing local resources from local people to solve local problems faced by local people. To scale up its activities and continue to promote inclusive, equitable, quality education for poverty alleviation and sustainable development across the African continent, we must address the education crises. Thank you to all the members, both individuals and organizations who are already responding with a commitment donation to #OneDollarCommitment.

To respond to the pressing African humanitarian crises, the education crisis must be addressed first, that is EIC pre-launched the ambitious #OneDollarCommitment, a resource mobilization campaign in a twitter space on July 3, 2023. Already delivering quality education to over 201 children across 5 African countries, the campaign calls on every African, donors, the private sector, philanthropic foundations, and high-net-worth individuals to urgently mobilize $1 to scale up EIC’s investment in the Right to Education for every child, youth and adolescent whose Education is in Crisis.
