Refugee education

Ensuring access to quality education for all refugee children, youth, and their host communities is critical.
Technology can provide access to quality content for displaced learners, but it must be implemented as part of a carefully-designed support programme.

Why It Matters

At the end of 2019, there were 79.5 million forcibly displaced people across the globe
In 2017, only 61% and 23% of refugee children were enrolled in primary and secondary school, respectively, compared to 92% and 84% of children globally
Limited financial resources, lack of schools, and xenophobia prevent many refugees from accessing education
