Beirut, Lebanon: UNICEF supporter and musician, Dua Lipa, makes art with refugee children, many from Syria, on 14 April. “This is personal for me. My parents fled a war-torn region and built a life for themselves...” Lipa says. “Each one of the refugee children I met has parents just like my own, who have tried to make the best decisions they could.” UNICEF has been working with the Government to improve access to formal education for both Lebanese and non-Lebanese children.

Mongolia, June 2018: Khulan, 5, plays with a hoop outside the mobile ‘ger’ (nomadic tent) kindergarten in Bayankhongor Province.

Through its funding for the tent classrooms, UNICEF is meeting the needs of more than 20 children in Khulan’s nomadic herder community. In low-income countries today, only 1 in 5 young children is enrolled in pre-primary education.
