Every child deserves the opportunity to follow their dreams. But for kids forced to flee their homes and schools because of conflict or disaster, it’s not so easy.  

Globally, 222 million children are affected by conflict, the climate crisis and humanitarian crises. Decision-makers are failing to invest in peace, the environment, and equality, and as a result, the most vulnerable young people suffer.

222 million dreams are being shattered because of a lack of action from world leaders.

Millions of today's children are growing up in refugee and internally displaced person camps with no access to education that would help them escape cycles of poverty.
