The Secretariat

The Association for the Geneva Global Hub for Education in Emergencies‘ Secretariat was created in September, 2022 by decision of the EiE Hub Steering Group.

As an association under Swiss law, based in Geneva, the Secretariat supports the EiE Hub in operationalizing its mandate. It works towards the realisation of the right to education for crisis-affected and displaced children and youth, and supports the EiE Hub through technical support and strategic advice. It thereby contributes to the operationalisation of the strategic objectives and activities set out in the 2022–2025 EiE Hub strategy.
