76% of the schools that were functional before the crisis are functional in the three regions of northern Mali as of December 2014 (back to school data for 2014-2015 school year). More than 300 schools are still closed in the regions of Gao, Kidal, Mopti, and Timbuktu, the consequences of which imply internal displacement within the North and the overcrowding of classrooms, deteriorating the quality of teaching and learning. Data on (non)functional schools is in constant flux due to population movements, occupation of schools, and general insecurity.

What followed was one of the worst humanitarian catastrophes of the modern era: 230,000 people lost their lives in the floods, 110,000 were injured, 1.7 million inhabitants of the coastline were without any shelter. These numbers and facts seem unreal, in reality however, they have involved countless painful fates.
