NetHope launches refugee education tech task force
March 6, 2017 - After shelter and food, education is one of the highest priorities of refugee communities, but it’s often the first program to be cut when funding is short. As a result, only one in two refugee children have access to primary school, which declines to fewer than one in four enrolling in secondary school, dropping to an alarming one in 100 having the opportunity to continue their studies at university. 1.75 million Syrian children and youth are out of school and 1.35 million at risk of dropping out. There is a very real risk that these children will become “a lost generation.”
