Globally, 224 million school-aged children and young people are affected by climate- or conflict-related emergencies. Providing education in emergencies is life-saving and life-protecting for these children, as it equips them with the skills to escape crises, build their resilience and sustain hope for a brighter future.

This month we heard from Send My Friend to School‘s Campaign Manager Rebekah Lucking about how we can ensure education is prioritised as it should. If you want to contribute to advocacy efforts towards providing education in emergencies, you can take action here!
