Child refugees stranded in Greece have been out of school for an average of one and a half years, risking a generation which has been denied the right to an education, according to Save the Children.

As the inaugural World Humanitarian Summit gets underway today (23rd May) in Istanbul with a focus on refugee education, a new study by the agency found that although more than three quarters of school-aged refugee children interviewed in Greece said that going to school was one of their top priorities, more than one in five of them have never even begun their education.

A blog post from Valerie Sorgho, Save the Children’s National Advocacy and Campaign Manager in Burkina Faso

In Burkina Faso, we have recently achieved important steps forward in health.

I’ve been working with advocates for women and children’s health to campaign for the removal of user fees. The coalition’s campaign, ‘Ma Voix, La Santé des Enfants’ (My Voice, Children’s Health) brought together a wide range of partners to lobby for the introduction of this policy and resulted in the passing of a law on the removal of fees.
