About

UNICEF Colombia has been thinking outside the box to reach the most vulnerable migrant children from Venezuela and support their learning trajectories. Since 2021, with strategic and technical support from UNICEF, the Government of Colombia has supported approximately 334,505 children and adolescents (51 per cent girls) to transition back to formal education and strengthen their foundational literacy and numeracy skills. Of these, 47,786 are migrant or refugee children.
