Would you like to support and protect the education of refugee children?

War, violence and displacement drive millions of girls and boys from school, from their refuge, their safe space, their space of peace.

But their education must not stop under any circumstances, even during emergencies. It is precisely in these difficult situations when it is essential that these children continue to receive education and everything that it makes possible: access to food, drinking water, training and protection from violence. We must continue to defend the right to education.

Choose some paper or fabric that you like, or recycle a magazine or newspaper.
Print the shape of the School is Refuge DOVE.
Place the shape of the DOVE on your paper or fabric, then draw or trace it and then cut it out.
Glue the shape onto a piece of card and write on it what PEACE means to you.
Put your DOVE in your window or balcony as a symbol of your commitment to PEACE and the right to education.
Take a photo of your DOVE or that of other people and EMAIL IT TO US

Encourage your friends, family and all those around you to take part, so that refugee children know that we defend their right to continue receiving an education, even in the midst of an emergency.
