Ensuring children return safely to learning.

In April 2024, Volvo Cars launched the ‘Volvo For Life Fund’ to support actions that protect people and planet. The Fund aims to touch lives, uplift communities, and nurture ecosystems.

As part of the work to protect people, Volvo Cars will support emergency response and relief work to help make sure that immediate humanitarian needs are met. Furthermore, it will support longer term work to ensure education and learning remain a priority when natural disasters strike.

Sharing the same ambition to improve for safety for children, working together with Volvo Cars, Save the Children will help to ensure children can return quickly and safely back to learning following a climate-related emergency or major natural disaster.

The partnership will focus on building resilient education systems in countries prone to natural disasters. It will aim to enable safety and wellbeing through providing temporary learning spaces in emergency situations.

Education is lifesaving for children in crisis.

Today, millions of children around the world are left without an education due to climate-related emergencies or major natural disasters. We know that education is lifesaving, and without a quality basic education, children are less likely to escape the cycle of poverty and may never have the opportunity to fulfill their potential.

Research indicates that the number of crises affecting school-aged children and adolescents that require educational support has grown from an estimated 75 million in 2016 to 222 million in 2024. It is critical to help children of ALL ages return to developmentally appropriate learning as quickly as possible.
