PEIC

PEIC was founded to Protect Education in Insecurity and Conflict

Our Vision

War, conflict and insecurity threaten education. Teachers and students may be killed, tortured or imprisoned. Schools and universities may be destroyed making learning an almost impossible goal. Military use of educational premises makes schools and universities vulnerable to attacks. Insecurity forces children and teachers to stay at home. Economic disruption means that families cannot afford to pay for education.

PEIC advocates in defense of education when it is most at risk and also most vital.
