Description:

Education is one of the pillars of UNICEF's work. Nowadays, children from conflict zones live in a situation in which access to education is diminished. Armed conflicts have destroyed educational centers or made areas where they are inaccessible. In addition, insecurity has directly influenced children to migrate to other countries and suffer from backwardness in the education system of the country of asylum or in the refugee camps. Millions are beginning to be known by names like the "lost generation" given their inability to access teaching. Education is the tool by which the human being constructs himself as an integral being and therefore, addressing this problem is an absolute priority for millions of children are deprived of this human right.
