Why donate to Action Education?

By donating to Action Education, you are contributing to build a better world, through a quality education for all.

Even today, 1 in 5 children in the world are not in school1 

Poverty, crises, discrimination, exclusion, violence, forced labour and health conditions are real obstacles to education in some countries.

For over 40 years, Action Education has been working to remove these barriers and has conducted more than 91 projects in 20 countries in Africa, Asia and Europe with 1.5 million children, young people and adults.

It is your generosity that allows us to have the resources to support these vulnerable and marginalised populations to become self-sufficient.

How to donate to defend education?

Because there is no such thing as a small donation, it is possible to support Action Education's struggles by giving in different ways. All these ways of supporting our projects have one goal: providing access to quality education for all.

You give the amount you want, when you want it. This donation expresses your commitment to global education and helps to overcome its obstacles. 

Make a monthly donation

Real long-term commitmentYour monthly donations by direct debit allow us to help more people; and carry out long-term projects. You can change or suspend your monthly donation at any time.

To support us, you can also :

Sponsor a project

Be at the heart of our missions by sponsoring the educational project of your choice. You contribute to the development of children and to empowerment of their communities. You will receive regular and exclusive news from the field.

Pass on your wealth

Giving the school as a legacy means giving meaning to your assets. Bequests, donations, inheritance gifts or taking out a life insurance policy: every gesture, whatever the amount, is essential and you will contribute to a fairer and more sustainable world. 

Donate with confidence

Action Education is an association under the French law of 1901, recognised as being of public utility and authorised to receive donations, legacies and life insurance. Making a donation is not trivial and we are aware of this.

This is why we do everything we can to be transparent with our donors. Your generosity has a real impact on the lives of the people we serve, and we bring you proof of this.


Each year we publish our Activity Report in which you can find all the projects made possible by your donations as well as the origin and use of the funds.

Making a donation: our answers to your frequently asked questions

Where does Action Education get its resources from?

The majority of Action Education's resources come from the generosity of the public. For more information, please visit Action Education highlights.

Does Action Education work with the states in which it operates?

Action Education supports actors in its areas of intervention so that they are able to decide, elaborate, implement and evaluate their own development projects.

In this context, it maintains a close dialogue with the State and considers it as an indispensable interlocutor with whom it plays a facilitating role. Action Education respects the sovereignty of the state as the guarantor of education policy.

However, in order to accompany it, the association reserves the right to have a positive criticism on the educational policies carried out. As a facilitator, Action Education provides the State with methods, techniques and tools enabling it to exercise relevant decision-making and to drive the implementation of appropriate educational policies.

How are the resources collected used?

The principle of Action Education is to pool donations across all missions so that we can only intervene according to the real needs of each project.
