Hajia Talatu flashed a wan smile when she described her life before Boko Haram changed everything.

“When my husband was alive, life was very sweet, life was very easy. He provided everything for us,” she remembered.

Her husband’s work as a truck driver was enough to support her and her eight children. That all changed two years ago, when her husband and some of the other men from their village were killed in a Boko Haram ambush on their way to the market.

Soon after, insurgents raided their village, killing indiscriminately and burning the school and homes.

Displacement in Eastern Africa is predominantly of a protracted nature. At the end of February 2016, there were 11.7 million people displaced in the region, mostly in Sudan, South Sudan, Somalia and Ethiopia (UNHCR), and at least half are children. Although most have been displaced for several years or even decades, few have durable solutions prospects such as returning to their home, being integrated into their host communities or settle elsewhere.
