Arrivals and Departures
One in four of the world’s school-aged children – 462 million – now live in countries affected by crisis. Of these children, 75 million are in the most desperate need of support: they are either in danger of or already missing out on their right to education. During crises, children are particularly at risk of missing out on their education, yet schools provide a safe space and a vital routine for children during times of major upheaval. Education gives children the building blocks to rebuild their lives and, eventually, their country.
At least 3.5 million refugee children around the world are currently out of school, leaving them increasingly vulnerable to discrimination and potential abuse, as well as exploitation by traffickers or the pressure of entering into early marriage.
During the reporting period, at total of 312 returnees have been assisted to voluntarily return to Somalia by flight: 159 to Mogadishu, 76 to Kismayu and 77 to Baidoa. Since the repatriation process started in December 2014, 63 road convoys and 75 flights have been organized to Somalia (67 Mogadishu, 4 Kismayu and 4 to Baidoa). In Total 13,800 returnees were supported as of 28th April 2016 out of which 7,703 were assisted between January and April 2016.
2016 is set to be an important year for a programming shift in the Kenya refugee operation. Reorientation from traditional care and maintenance in the camps, towards truly solutions-oriented programming, is starting to take root in response to the new circumstances and unprecedented global challenges.

Yemen is a historic transit hub for mixed migratory movements of refugees, asylum seekers and migrants from the Horn of Africa to the Arabian Peninsula and beyond.
CONTEXT AND NEEDS
Yemen is considered as a transit and destination country for migrants and refugees due to its long coastline and proximity to the Horn of Africa. Yemen is a signatory to the 1951 Refugee Convention and its 1967 Protocol, and has granted prima facie refugee status to Somalis arriving in the country since the outbreak of hostilities in Somalia. UNHCR undertakes RSD for all other nationalities except for Syrians, who are granted status under a temporary protection scheme.
The number of forcibly displaced people (refugees and internally displaced people) has continued to rise alarmingly in 2015 and 2016, calling for increased humanitarian assistance worldwide.
