CHARTER FOR action

The Charter for Action for Refugee Education is an expression of our collective ambition and commitment. It provides an opportunity for organisations to affirm the education related commitments in the New York Declaration and Global Compact on Refugees and to publicly commit to accelerating and expanding their organisational efforts to deliver those commitments.
