For World Refugee Day we would like to share with you a video from our “Access for out of school Children to Education & Safe Schools (AcCESS)” project in Pakistan which enables access to education for all children, including Afghan refugee children in Pakistan. Seeking refuge is unfortunately a harsh reality that affects many people all over the world as a result of persecution, conflict, violence, human rights violations or events seriously disturbing public order. The COVID-19 crisis has enforced the situation. According to the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) by the end of 2020 82.4 million people were forcibly displaced worldwide. 48.0 million of them being internally displaced people, 26.4 million account as refugees, 4.1 million are seeking asylum and a total of 3.9 million are Venezuelans displaced abroad. According to the United Nations an estimated 35 million (42%) of the 82.4 million forcibly displaced people are children below 18 years of age. The UN also states that “every minute 20 people leave everything behind to escape war, persecution or terror”. 68% of forcibly displaced people originate from just five countries: Syrian Arab Republic, Venezuela, Afghanistan, South Sudan and Myanmar. The AcCESS project for out-of-school children aims to improve access to quality education in emergencies, other situations of violence and early recovery phases…also for refugee children living in the project’s districts. The AcCESS project is generously co-funded by the Austrian Development Cooperation (ADC) and the European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid (ECHO).
