30 August 2019

The vast majority of the world’s nearly 26 million refugees are hosted in the Global South where providing education for them is a major challenge, the UN refugee agency (UNHCR) said on Friday.

In an interview with UN News’s Daniel Johnson, the agency’s Mamadou Dian Balde (Deputy Director, UNHCR Division of Resilience and Solutions) explains how a new plan is helping to provide not just primary but also secondary schooling to vulnerable youngsters.
