EAA (Education Above All) is the main lever of working in Education.
It's revised Mission States that "To ensure inclusive and equitable quality education for vulnerable and marginalized people especially in the developing world, as an enabler of human development". It envisions bringing new life chances, real hope and opportunities to improve the lives as of Poor and margonalised children, youth and women especially in the developing world.

SDG goal 4 calls for equal access for all women and men to affordable and quality technical, vocational and tertiary education, including university. Likewise, the goal aims to increase the number of youth and adults with relevant skills, including technical and vocational, for employment and entrepreneurship.
The SDG targets also expect to eliminate gender disparities in Education and ensure equal access to all levels of Education and vocational training for the vulnerable, including those with disabilities, indigenous peoples, and children in vulnerable situations. They also aim to ensure that all youth and a substantial proportion of adults, both men and women, achieve literacy and numeracy.

EAA has 3 strategic drivers: amplifying Impact, enhancing knowledge, and strengthening its reputation as a global leader in Education.
Their focus areas are:
Out of school children (OOSC)
Children and Youth in conflict
Syrian conflict
Extreme Poverty
Child labor
Child soldiers
Marginalised girls

They have 3 strategic themes: global recognition, thought leadership, and impact.
Global leadership is to be recognized as a world leader in field of Education of vulnerable and marginalised populations.
As an Advocate for Education, influencing education policy, programs and practices.
To make a difference through programs, initiatives and projects that have measurable impact in high-need and internationally visible education topics.
To create a high performing organization with an organizational culture that consistently measures and communicates impact and value.

Values and Principles:
The Right to Education for all. It is a human right and an enabler of other rights.
Collaboration. It works in collaboration with others so as to avoid duplication of effort.
Diversity. It reflects the diversity of the population it supports
Equality. No discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, age, national origin, marital status, disability or any social characteristic (caste).
Innovation. Will pursue new creative ideas that have the potential to influence the world.
Transparency. To be open and honest in all its dealings with everyone the foundation works with and with each other.

Educate a child program (EAC)
This is its flagship program taking up around 50% of its budget with a goal to reach 10 million out of school children (7.1 million target already achieved by 2016) and is implemented in 48 countries. Cofunders give between 50 to 60% of the budget. BHARATI is its biggest cofunders in India. On an average around $100 is spent per child. In India, EAC spent around 50 million riyals while cofunders spent 52 million to educate 565000 youth.

A critical feature of EAC is context-specific programming, as opposed to a "one size fits all" project design. Beacause OOSC (out of school children) are marginalised by a number of barriers, sensitivity to their specialised learning needs and removal of obstacles they face in a particular country or region requires flexibility and adaptability.

EAC highlights
The CEO of EAC, Dr Mary Joe Pigozzi, recieved " Education leadership award" at the World Education conference 2016.

EAC publications include Accelerated Education Programming for faster learning for Adults who have lagged behind.
Education and the SDG's shows relationship between education impact SDG4 and each of the other SDGs and
Education Impacts the SDGs, showing how quality education contributes to achieving other SDGs.

EAC has a Monitoring and Evaluation system (M&E) where data and information on the outcomes is compiled.Every 6 months, partners submit dataset directly to the online server, along with technical and financial reports of progress towards targets, challenges encountered, and mitigation strategies to address them. Data submitted undergoes a rigorous quality assurance review for accuracy and then reported on the website etc.
EAC spends around 15% of its budget on Nonprogram costs and 18% on administration.

The Strategic Policy and Research directorate (SPR) identifies focus areas and and specific goals to most effectively serve the community and it's partners.
The SPR will work on Policy and Research providing detailed briefings and advise on economic. Educational, social, and foreign policy trends related to emerging issues and relevant topics.
It will work on Strategy and on the steering of the foundations overall direction.. strategic planning, strategy landscape analysis, strategic implementation, and endorsement of program units and strategies.
It will work on Monitoring and Risk Management of the organization programs and initiatives. It also works to improve the foundations management systems through assessment, action plans, and implementation of risk management methods.
It's future approach is to work on SDG 4 goals and work within the Wave 2 strategy.

EAA draws ist strength from its collaboration. The approach used is one of scalability. We align with partners who are already active in key areas and support them with resources, knowledge and network. For information on how to become an EAA partner, contact:

Strategic Partners
Made with organizations that have a global reach and a similar mission and vision and are able to support EAA with advise and access to resources and networks
Implementing partners
These are those that have demonstrated understanding of the obstacles faced by out of school children and have implemented successful approaches to enable children to overcome these obstacles in order to access and complete a quality primary education.
Advocacy partners
They bring expertise, energy, and persuasive influence to get focus and action in support of out of school children's education
Resource Partners
Those who contribute to EAAs mission through providing with what works in reaching out of school children. Innovation in developing the most practical, appropriate, and affordable Means to addressing the obstacles faced by out of school children. And financial resources that helps close the funding gap for primary education.
To become a partner goto: www.!/partners.

In a statement from the Founder, Sheikha Moza Bint Nasser States " At EAA, we have a comprehensive approach to Education that aims to enable human development by improving access for vulnerable and marginalised people, wherever they maybe.
The EAA programs are delivered through our strategic implementing partners.
Collaboration for Strength is the essence of EAA... bringing to gather small grassroot NGO's. UN agencies, from human rights bodies to selected multinational corporations."

The Vocational and Technical Educations seems to be a minor area within the EAC, even though SDGs give it high importance. Clarify on this.
What is the Wave 2 strategy?
