Amal Alliance will participate in the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR)’s first Global Refugee Forum to be held in Geneva, Switzerland December 17-18, 2019 as a co-sponsor for the Education area of focus. The creation of the GRF has arisen from a context of a progression of multilateral initiatives that have induced broader and deeper commitments from the international community to share responsibilities for protecting the rights and assuring the well-being of refugees across the world. To learn more visit the GRF website.

The goal of this forum is to deliver concrete pledges and contributions that will advance the objectives of the Global Compact and achieve tangible benefits for refugees and host communities.

As a co-sponsors for Education, we are participating in the ECD, Primary, and Emergencies Task Teams. We pledge towards: 

1. Advocacy: We will lead a global campaign to connect stakeholders and increase awareness of the benefits and return on investment of early childhood education and psychosocial interventions.

2. Exchange of good practices & scalable models: We propose an interactive exhibition or side event that not only highlights best practices and scalable models, but also includes refugee participation to ensure needs are being met.

3. Thought and information sharing: We recommend the unification of an open source platform in which data and best practices are consolidated and shared, to encourage effective coordination.

4. Implementation: We will pledge to have a minimum of 25,000 children access our early childhood education and psychosocial support programs by 2022.

NONE OF THESE PLEDGES CAN BE ACHIEVED ALONE. We urge fellow Co-sponsors for Education, NGOs and UN member states around the world to collaborate and work towards moving forward our collective objective.

If your organization is interested in collaborating with us to advance these goals, please do not hesitate to contact us at We look forward to working together to advance our collective missions and provide these children with the education and psycho-social support they need and deserve!
