Emergency Lessons is a Unicef campaign to highlight the importance of education for children affected by emergencies.
Nearly one in four of the world’s school-aged children – 462 million – now lives in 35 countries affected by crises, including an estimated 75 million children who are in desperate need of educational support.
Apart from missing out on education, and the benefits it yields for them and for their societies, out of school children are more vulnerable to abuse, exploitation, and recruitment by armed forces. Schools provide a safe haven where children can be protected from these threats.
The campaign also celebrates the other benefits of going to school – the friends made, the teachers who support children through trauma, the stability found in the routine of attending classes.
