Washington, D.C. (May 20, 2015) — Save the Children is horrified and deeply saddened by reports of the killing, maiming, rape and abduction of children in Unity State, South Sudan, in the last two weeks. We are particularly disturbed by the deliberate targeting of children by armed groups, the on-going recruitment of children into these armed groups, and the continued reports of the rape of children by armed groups.
An estimated 79,965 are refugee children between the ages of 3 – 17 years. Of these 58,327 are school age boys and girls between ages of 6 to 17 years.
80% des écoles fonctionnelles avant la crise sont actuellement fonctionnelles dans les trois régions au Nord du Mali . Toutefois, plus de 430 écoles sont fermées dans les régions de Gao, Kidal, Mopti, Ségou, et Tombouctou. Dans le centre du pays et la zone frontalière avec la Mauritanie, la situation se d é grade de plus en plus. Les données des écoles (non-) fonctionnelles sont en constant changement du fait de l’évolution dans la situation sécuritaire.
80% of the schools that were functional before the crisis are functional in the three regions of northern Mali. Nonetheless, more than 430 schools are closed in the regions of Gao, Kidal, Mopti, Segou, and Timbuktu. In the center of the country, and in areas near the Mauritanian border, the situation is worsening. Data on (non)functional schools is in constant flux due to the constantly evolving security situation

A quest for humanitarian effectiveness? Debating the evolution of humanitarian action: history, practice, politics and performance
This conference, jointly organised by the Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute (HCRI) and Save the Children’s Humanitarian Affairs Team (HAT), will reflect on the evolution and consequence of existing approaches to understanding and improving humanitarian effectiveness. But it will also explore effects of humanitarian action (in historical and contemporary context) that tend not to be captured by the conventional discourse on effectiveness.
