easyJet and UNICEF have launched an onboard winter collection to support UNICEF’s Global Education Fund which aims to ensure that every child has the right to learn. Donations to the fund will be used to address children’s access to education, improve the quality of learning and provide educational support during emergencies.

UNICEF’s Global Education Fund supports innovative global programmes to strengthen education systems and give the most vulnerable children the chance to learn. These programmes are critical as, according to UNICEF data, schooling does not always lead to learning: a staggering 70% of 10 year olds in low and middle income countries today are unable to read a simple sentence. UNICEF is working with governments, partners, communities and parents to enable every child to access a quality education.

The collections are now taking place on flights across easyJet’s entire network, spanning 35 countries. The funds raised will help UNICEF provide urgent support to children and their families to tackle the learning crisis around the world.

During this Winter collection, easyJet cabin crew will be raising funds onboard and will continue the New Year with passengers able to donate in any currency. Thanks to the generosity of customers, easyJet’s partnership with UNICEF raised more than £150,000 during this year’s Summer Collection, in support of UNICEF’s Education appeal.

Michael Brown, Director of Cabin Services, commented: “We’re incredibly proud to partner with UNICEF and to be launching our new winter collection onboard, meaning millions more easyJet customers flying over the festive period will have the opportunity to help UNICEF continue making a real difference to children and their families around the globe. Education is a fundamental right for all children so we are pleased our crew can help facilitate collections to help to provide uninterrupted education for every child.

“I would like to thank all of our customers who have already donated, for their kindness and generosity and this is, of course, all made possible by our fantastic crew, who are passionate about going the extra mile to raise money for UNICEF.”

Jon Sparkes, Chief Executive at The National Committee for UNICEF (UNICEF UK) said: “Education is a key social and cultural right and plays an important role in reducing poverty and child labour. Yet, 64 million children of primary school age remain out of school. This is why,  with the support of incredible partners like easyJet, UNICEF teams work around the clock to reach every child affected, ensure they have access to quality learning opportunities and can shape a better future for themselves.

“I would like to say a sincere thank you to easyJet customers for their donations as well as to easyJet employees for their continuous support towards UNICEF’s work for children.”
