Greece: refugee integration through education
Description: Abbas is 10 years old. He goes to school every day from 1.30 pm to 6.00 pm. Education for him has been a battle. He is Afghan and arrived at the Malakasa refugee camp in north-eastern Greece with his family a year and a half ago. He is one of 2 500 children living in camps who have started formal education in Greek schools. “I’ve been going to school for three months. It’s really important to study, it’s important for my future,” he tells us. Abbas and the other young refugees have been accepted in 93 schools across mainland Greece thanks to a transport scheme funded by EU Humanitarian Aid and implemented by the UN’s International Organization for Migration (IOM). The project started in October 2016 and now covers 32 camps. Video by Euronews

Refugee education in crisis: three standout statistics
Description: Opportunities to learn diminish greatly when children are forced to flee their homes and as they grow older, a troubling new report from UNHCR has found. The report compares UNHCR data on refugee education with UNESCO data on global school enrolment. Only 50 per cent of refugee children have access to primary education, compared with a global average of more than 90 per cent. And as these children become older, the gap becomes a chasm: only 22 per cent of refugee adolescents attend secondary school compared to a global average of 84 per cent. At the higher education level, just one per cent of refugees attend university, compared to a global average of 34 per cent.
