The right to safety and education should be guaranteed to all children during the armed conflict, therefore, the Ministry of Education and Science supports the initiative of joining the Safe School Declaration. This statement was made by Liliya Hrynevych, Minister of Education and Science, during round table “The Safe Schools Declaration: how to protect the right to education during armed conflict” on Thursday.

The vision of the Ukraine Education Cluster is to ensure that all children and young people affected by conflict have equitable access to relevant, quality education in a safe and protective environment.
ENDING VIOLENCE AGAINST CHILDREN GROSSLY UNDERFUNDED WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION
New report shows only a small fraction of official development assistance goes toward ending violence against children For the first time, a review of official development assistance (ODA) to end violence against children has been done. The report Counting Pennies found that in 2015, total ODA spending was $174 billion and of that, less than 0.6 per cent was allocated to ending violence against children.
The Global Education Cluster (GEC) 2016 Report seeks to illustrate how the work of the GEC has been particularly significant in achieving results. It presents examples of our work that demonstrate how our aim to be as field-focused and field-informed as possible has enabled education responses to be more effective, through better coordination. The report also looks at the changing humanitarian landscape and new opportunities for the field of education in emergencies (EiE), with the launch of the Education Cannot Wait Fund.
Kyiv/Geneva, 6 February 2017 – Thousands of children have been forced out of school in eastern Ukraine due to last week’s surge in fighting. At least five schools and two kindergartens have been damaged by heavy shelling and 11 other schools have had to close, according to humanitarian organisations supporting the emergency education response in Ukraine.

Global immunisation progress has plateaued in recent years, as highlighted in our briefing Universal Immunisation Coverage: Further, Faster, Fairer, published earlier this year with RESULTS UK. The latest immunisation data just been released by WHO and UNICEF doesn’t offer encouraging news – global coverage remains unchanged.
KEY HUMANITARIAN NEEDS
Education: 0.6 million children in need
Many children do not have access to school supplies and up to 25,000 children have missed classes due to the conflict.
Child protection: 1.7 million children in need
Many children have been exposed to violence and need psychosocial support. At least 68 children have been killed and around 186 have been injured.
KEY HUMANITARIAN NEEDS
Water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH): 1.3 million people in need
Many people in conflict-affected areas cannot access safe drinking water and the cost of hygiene items is very high,
Food: 1.8 million people in need
High food prices in non-government controlled areas and reduced incomes mean many families cannot afford to buy enough food.
A. Aim of this guidance
The note outlines benefits, risks, options, and resources for supporting appropriate infant and young child feeding (IYCF) in children under 2 years of age in refugee and migrant transit situations in Europe.
Section 1: Shock and needs analysis summary
Type(s) of shock: Conflict/internal displacement
It’s 1pm on a Friday but the corridors of a school in Debaltseve, a town in the east of Ukraine that has been the scene of some of the worst fighting of the conflict, are silent.
No children’s footsteps or shouts echo through the corridors. They should be returning to class for afternoon lessons but most will have already picked their way through the debris that litters the streets and returned home for the day.
Svetlana is a young mother, in her late twenties. In her home town of Donetsk, she worked as an accountant, but as the conflict in Ukraine intensified around her, she became afraid for her family’s lives. She fled with her children to a neighbouring village. We sit together in a crowded family shelter there as she tells me her story.
“I left my parents behind in Donetsk. I was there only three days ago – it is a nightmare made real. In some areas, the destruction is total. The people there…they look like shadows.”
