Global Business Coalition for Education’s Commitment to Education In Emergencies: Progress Report

At the World Humanitarian Summit in 2016, the Global Business Coalition for Education (GBCEducation) committed to mobilize $100 million in financial and relevant in-kind resources from the business community to support the newly launched Education Cannot Wait fund for education in emergencies. To deliver on this pledge, GBC-Education has created the Rapid Education Action database, known simply as REACT. REACT aims to coordinate available private sector resources and provide systematic ways to direct these resources to solve challenges faced when delivering education in these difficult emergency contexts.
