World Refugee Sabbath
help refugee Children be a child in school with hope
"My name is Amira. I use to be just a child. Now, I am called a child refugee."
As we mark World Refugee Day—June 20th—more than 65 million people continue to be displaced globally, according to the refugee agency for the United Nations, UNHCR. Refugee children are five times more likely to be out of school than non-refugee children. These numbers mean one thing: we cannot afford to waver in our response to help those displaced by conflict, persecution or disaster.
Watch Amira’s story and join us in our commitment to see every child refugee in school.

No child should ever be denied an education. Not because of conflict or displacement. Not because of their gender, ethnicity, or disability. Every child, everywhere, has the right to attend school and get an education. Unfortunately, 262 million children, adolescents, and youth are currently denied this right.
Refugee children are five times more likely to be out of school than non-refugee children.
Join us in the fight to see every child, including refugee children, in school.
