Ronneilys Corredor is a 15-year old girl, born in northern Venezuela, who crossed the Brazilian border and arrived in Boa Vista, Roraima. She had to live with her family in a shelter for two months. Those hard times were partially recompensed when she had the chance to reconnect with education in a UNICEF Learning Space. In one of the 10 Learning Points located in border cities she learned about her new country and accessed non-formal learning activities.
In Brazil, UNICEF signed past May 2019 partnership agreements with World Vision and Instituto Pirilampos to implement the newly designed integrated humanitarian programme approach on child protection and education. These partnerships will be able to reach 4,820 children in and out of shelters in Roraima and Manaus through 21 integrated centres. 3,445 children, including adolescents as Ronneilys, have benefited from these learning activities already in Brazil.
