School Building

School Building in conflict area

Through the past decade, wars and conflicts have torn many countries along the way, leaving their infrastructure dilapidated. And at the top of this raked pile is education.

According to a report done by Education Under Attack in 2014, “There are a great many attacks on children, teachers, and schools that took place in at least 70 countries”.

Through this brutal war, school buildings are used for military purposes by the parties to a conflict, making teachers and children all the more vulnerable to attack.

Today, we are standing at the edge of 50 million children and youth who don’t have access to education because of these ongoing conflicts and crises.
