UNICEF have released their report ‘Children in Crisis – UNICEF emergency response in
Sudan and neighbouring countries’ explaining impact of the conflict on children and their education.
Schools and learning institutions in conflict affected areas remain mostly closed. Nearly 7 million school-age children were already out of school before the conflict, one in three girls and one in four boys. These numbers have increased significantly, especially in Khartoum, with girls less likely to return to school. Out of school children are at greater risk of physical and mental threats, including recruitment into armed groups and GBV.
UNICEF is supporting children’s access to safe schooling and other learning
opportunities by providing supplies to schools, individual learning materials
and establishing safe and child-friendly learning spaces such as 42 E-learning centers
