About UNHCR UN Agency for Refugees
UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, is a global organization dedicated to saving lives, protecting rights and building a better future for refugees, forcibly displaced communities and stateless people
Besides equipping children with the necessary academic skills to build their own lives, education allows refugee children to access a normal childhood and feel included within their community. In many cases, the most vulnerable refugee families are unable to afford the additional costs that come with education, often meaning that children either do not access education at all or must drop out. UNHCR supported around 700 non-Syrian refugee youth from the most vulnerable families to stay in school by helping them to cover the costs of education. Jordan hosts refugees from other Arab conflict affected countries; such as Iraq, Yemen, and Sudan, in addition to those from 52 other nationalities. (UNHCR Dec 2019).
