Providing education and protection to out-of-school children

In times of conflict and displacement children are often the most vulnerable. Having fled their homes and everything they know, these out-of-school children are also without the opportunity of education to help protect their childhood and shape their future. Apart from the basic knowledge and life skills gained, attending school gives displaced children a safe place to play and develop, gives them a hope for the future, provides routine and a sense of normalcy, a place to make friends and build social skills, and decreases common risks for refugee children such as abuse, child labor, early marriage, exploitation, trafficking, and radicalization.
