Education in Emergencies (EIE) fund

The MEC Education in Emergencies (EiE) Fund operated in 2014 and 2015 was designed to support small-scale responses to emergencies where the availability of other funding sources was limited and children’s education needs were unmet as a result of the emergency.

During 2014 and 2015, a total of US$216,000 was allocated to MEC partner organisations to ensure that children could continue their education in a number of emergency situations, including large-scale flooding and landslides in August 2015.

The MEC EiE Fund is currently closed, but could be reactivated in the case of future emergencies in Myanmar to enable partner organisations to respond rapidly.
