1. Introduction: The role of information in education

Today, 650 million children around the globe are at risk of being left behind as they fail to learn basic skills. Inequitable access to education is part of the problem, but even when children are in school, they may not be learning. In Uganda, for instance, barely half of grade 6 children read at a grade 2 level (Uwezo, 2016). In India, just one in four children enrolled in grade 5 can read a simple sentence or complete simple division problems (ASER Centre, 2017).

However, more needs to be done as protection risks remain high particularly for women and children. In the mainland and Crete, UNHCR provides 22,000 places in rented housing through municipalities and NGOs.
