3 Days left until the UN Universal Children’s Day!! Never is education more crucial than in times of a conflict! However, still many refugee children in informal refugee settlements do not receive any kind of schooling. This has devastating consequences, as the school provides a feeling of safety and normality. It gives structure, routine and purpose to a child which is especially important to children who have experienced loss, fear, violence and displacement. Furthermore, in the long run, education is required to end the persisting cycle of poverty and discrimination but also to prevent extremism and despair. Another outstanding fear of refugee children is that they won’t be able to read any signs showing them their way home if getting lost or being kidnapped.
