After an assessment of nine schools at the camps for the displaced in South Darfur’s Nyala and Bielel localities, the state Ministry of Education and Unicef concluded that 506 classrooms need rehabilitation. The schools are also short of teacher kits, student kits, and textbooks, according to the assessment conducted between June and the first week of August 2015.
There are more refugees and displaced people in the world today than ever recorded, and more than half of them are children. For them, and for millions more living in conflict-ridden and fragile states, education is often their only protection against becoming a lost generation, unable to bounce back from adversity without any employment prospects or a secure place in society.

17 Jan 2013 - Recent severe weather conditions across Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq – including heavy rain, snow and sub-zero temperatures—have greatly worsened the situation of hundreds of thousands of children displaced by the conflict in Syria. In northern Jordan, widespread flooding occurred at Za’atari refugee camp, swamping tents, and overwhelming the camp draining system. Deep mud made it harder for the water and dislodging trucks to access the camp. Around 55,000 Syrian refugees, half of them children, live at the camp.
