Do you want to support and protect education for refugee children?

School closures in response to the COVID-19 health crisis has forced millions of refugee children to lose their school, their refuge, their safe space.

But education must continue despite the circumstances, even in an emergency: these exceedingly difficult situations means it is more important than ever to ensure that refugee children continue to receive an education and all it makes possible: access to food, clean water, training, and protection from violence. We must continue to defend the right to education.
