According to the Save Our Future website, the world is currently in the greatest education emergency of recent times as the pandemic has disrupted learning for over 90% of the world’s students. Consequently, this has magnified the already existing inequalities, putting the future of the learners at risk.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has led to the greatest disruption of education systems in history, affecting 1.6 billion learners in all countries and all continents. Forecasts show that this generation of students stands to lose an estimated $10 trillion in earnings over time due to COVID-related school closures. As a result, they may never achieve their full education, job, and earnings potential,” says the organization.

Save Our Future, which has the World Bank, UNICEF and UNESCO as partners urges that “as we start to rebuild the world, it is critical that education is at the heart of international solidarity efforts. Education must be part of stimulus packages and education budgets need to be protected and increased. If we fail to invest in education in emergencies, we are setting the world on the course of more exclusion, inequality and polarization. Governments and the international community has to act together NOW to protect and promote investment in education.”

Following her appointment, Azziad joins Mexican singer Camilo who’s the other global ambassador for the initiative.
