The Arab Campaign for Education for All (ACEA)

Title of project: Engaging youth in education for social transformation.

Contextual/problem analysis:

In the Arab countries where ACEA operates, CSOs encounter serious institutional and structural obstacles to youth participation and involvement in decision-making and policy making processes.

The effects include, but are not limited to:

  1. Lack of clear governmental policy and regulatory frameworks concerned with increasing youth engagement and influence in public education policies,
  2. Limited capacities of youth CSOs in terms of youth mobilisation, unification and engagement, and
  3. Limited awareness of youth in terms of their role as agents of change, conjugated with their limited knowledge and capacities in SDG-4, civil society principles, human rights, advocacy, tactics and mechanisms.

The Global Campaign for Education (GCE) is a civil society movement that aims to end exclusion in education. Education is a basic human right, and our mission is to make sure that governments act now to deliver the right of everyone to a free, quality, public education.
