~ 50% of refugees are children (UNICEF)
~ Only 50% of the children attend a primary school. Even worst, only 22% attend a secondary school and 1% attend university.
~ More than 50% of the school-age children under UNHCR’s mandate have no school to go to.

Stuck in limbo, their educational opportunities all but end.
