EDUCATION

“In crisis-affected countries, school-age children are more than twice as likely to be out of school as their peers in other countries” – UNESCO

The Challenge

Conflicts, natural disasters and pandemics prevent millions of children from attending school and the numbers are rising. Yet even during such crises, education remains a fundamental priority for communities and aid organisations alike.

Ensuring continuity in learning builds resilience, promotes social cohesion and is a crucial step towards a sustained recovery. It is therefore critically important to guarantee the fast, effective supply of educational products and services following the onset of an emergency – which is precisely where Season Relief can help.

Education in emergencies: an urgent priority

35m estimated number of children that have been forcibly displaced worldwide

50% percentage of refugee children attending primary schoo

25% percentage of refugee children attending secondary school

2.5x multiple by which girls are more likely to be out of school in conflict-affected countries compared to boys

70m average number of pupils per teacher for children attending school during emergencies

3% proportion of humanitarian aid received by the education sector
