EAC is a program of Education Above All which aims to significantly reduce the numbers of children worldwide who are missing out on their right to education. Since its creation, it has launched more than 25 projects in countries across Africa, Asia and the Middle East. To date it has enabled 500,000 children to access primary education through these projects. Fostering innovation and creativity, it will share solutions that can be scaled up to reach millions of children and deliver sustainable education over the long term.
The Crans Montana Forum considers of the utmost importance the missions and work undertaken by EAC and is very pleased to present this award to Dr. Mary Joy Pigozzi, Director of EAC, on the occasion of the Official Ceremony to take place in Geneva on next October 16.
