Every child has the right to access good quality education. Yet, this right is denied to hundreds of millions of children aged 3-18 around the world.

For many, it’s due to humanitarian emergencies and protracted crises. Therefore, the only way to achieve this goal, uphold these rights and adhere to humanitarian principles is through the provision of education in emergencies.
