Education is lifesaving. Education is crucial for both the protection and healthy development of girls and boys affected by crises. It can rebuild their lives; restore their sense of normality and safety, and provide them with important life skills.

It is also one of the best tools to invest in their long-term future, and in the peace, stability and economic growth of their countries.
