These are 4 words that can open…

the world.

There are 4 words that can change the lives of over 33 million refugee children who are fleeing war, violence, and poverty all over the world: WELCOME, PROTECT, PROMOTE, INTEGRATE…

In late 2018, UN Member States are planning to adopt two Global Compact, one for Refugees and the second for Migrants. We want them to include these four words, proposed by Pope Francis, to influence the governments and those policies that permit and promote war, violence, and inequality.

Only 61 per cent of refugee children have access to primary school.

Children and minors under the age of 18 constitute 51% of the world’s refugee population, as such they are the age group most affected by forced displacement. Refugee children are five times more likely to be out of school than children in non-refugee situations.

Many refugee children spend their entire educational period living in a refugee situation, in either a refugee camp or urban area. Only 61 per cent of refugee children have access to primary school, as compared to 91 per cent of children around the world.

There are 33 million refugee and displaced children in the world.

They are alone.

Together with Entreculturas, we accompany more than 14,500 refugee children in Lebanon, Chad, South Sudan, and the Central African Republic. In countries like these, we provide children with quality education, which opens the doors to their future and allows them to enjoy childhood as it should be enjoyed.
