At American Express Global Business Travel (GBT), we invest in the future with education. With millions of children out of school, we are so proud of our flagship charitable cause – educating children during times of crisis – and our global partnership with UNICEF in support of this important work.

In Mauritania, UNICEF has been working with partners on a program to ensure that girls are able to return to school and receive the support that they need to make up for time outside of the classroom. Strategies include catch-up classes, back-to-school campaigns and Girls’ Clubs which work to bring girls back to school and keep them engaged and learning. © UNICEF/UNI372358/POUGET
