What Is the International Rescue Committee (IRC)?

The IRC has special expertise in working with conflict-affected children and youth. It has long been at the forefront of developing culturally relevant approaches to supporting the social, emotional and physical well-being of children. Access to quality, relevant education is an important part of supporting the overall well-being of children and youth in contexts of crisis, post-crisis and state fragility.
