Partners for inclusion in education

UNESCO works with many partners to advance inclusion in education. Partnerships are a key enabler for generating knowledge and supporting Member States in their efforts to ensure inclusive education systems. This list comprises the main partners with whom UNESCO works.

  • United Nations Girls’ Education Initiative (UNGEI)  is focusing policy advocacy efforts on four key strategic priorities:

    • An enhanced focus on marginalized and excluded groups;
    • The reduction/elimination of school-related gender-based violence;
    • Improved learning outcomes for girls; and
    • An increased number of girls transitioning to secondary education and accessing post-primary opportunities
  • Global Partnership for Children with Disabilities provides a platform for collective action and advocacy to ensure that the rights of children with disabilities are included in and prioritized by both the disability and child rights agendas at the global, regional, and country levels.
  • Leonard Cheshire Disability is an international organisation, in official partnership with UNESCO, with over 65 years’ experience in  ensuring that persons with disabilities have equal opportunity to achieve their full potential by living independently, contributing economically, and participating fully and equitably in society.
  • Light for the World promotes that everyone has an equal right to education. The organization supports inclusive education projects in which students can learn together and from each other.
