Globally, 264 million children and adolescents do not have the opportunity to enter or complete school. Some are children who are uprooted by conflicts and other emergencies. Others are missing out on school because of poverty, disability or discrimination.
To bring access to education for these children, we need, among other things:
- A safe, child-friendly space to learn and play
- Safe and age-appropriate supplies to help learning and development
These can be challenging to accommodate in emergency situations or in remote places that are hard to reach. Moreover, the needs for learning and emotional support can be different depending on the context, especially for children experiencing trauma following a humanitarian crisis.
