The education and development of so many children was disrupted this year by humanitarian emergencies - we look at some of the stories of despair and dreams.
One in four of the world’s school-age children - nearly 500 million - live in countries affected by humanitarian crises such as conflicts, natural disasters and disease outbreaks.
About 75 million children are either already missing out on their education, receiving poor quality schooling or at risk of dropping out of school altogether.
"Mobile schools" are being used to take education to children in small communities in parts of the country that are under attack from Boko Haram.
“These areas have not been safe for teachers so we hire teachers who go into communities and teach - and then they go back to where it is safe,” said Alfred Hangus.
An education in emergency specialist for the charity Plan International, Hangus is based at Maiduguri in Borno state, northeastern Nigeria.
To mark the anniversary of the Education Cannot Wait fund being launched, the Syrian teenager has sent a powerful message to children affected by humanitarian emergencies.
Around the world, more than 75 million children are being denied an education because of humanitarian emergencies.
Conflicts, natural disasters and health crises have seen them forced out of school, at risk of dropping out or receiving poor-quality education.
A $42 million investment in the Education Cannot Wait fund will give almost 1.5 million children in conflict-hit Chad, Syria and Yemen access to a quality education over the next two years.
The initial boost for the fund by global and national organisations will also be used to help strengthen humanitarian responses to education.
Education Cannot Wait is a fund for education in humanitarian emergencies including conflicts and natural disasters.
The international community is neglecting millions of vulnerable babies and young children affected by conflicts and disasters, a shocking report by children’s charity Theirworld warns today.
They will suffer from psychological trauma, toxic stress and poor brain development unless their needs are prioritised in humanitarian response plans.
The failure to plan for and finance early childhood development services in emergencies - ensuring "safe spaces" for all children - could have lifelong detrimental effects, according to Theirworld.
A couple of years ago, it was a struggle to get world leaders to sit up and take notice of the importance of funding education around the world.
Now - thanks to pressure from organisations and millions of people who backed campaigns like our #UpForSchool Petition - the right of every child to get a free, quality education is at the heart of the global agenda.
Unfortunately, as those leaders prepare to gather at the United Nations General Assembly next week, promises are still not being backed by actions.
Urgent action needed for 80m children whose education has been hit by emergencies
The number of children whose education has been disrupted by conflicts and natural disasters has increased to 80 million.
The shocking statistic for 2015 is revealed in an education in emergencies "scorecard" published today by A World at School, which calls for urgent action from world leaders.
There have been a record number of children affected by crises - including attacks on education, wars, natural disasters and health alerts such as Ebola.
