UN Calls for Global Partnerships to Support Education for 80 Million Refugees

Based on the UN’s Arab States 2019 Global Education Monitoring Report, over 80 million refugees in the Arab region are deprived of quality education, putting the youth at risk for exploitation. With the COVID-19 pandemic in tow, all of the challenges these refugees face are exacerbated, especially in education. Particularly as donors for all refugees are currently focusing on health and safety.

Lebanon and Jordan house many refugees, wherein less than five percent of them have completed secondary education before the pandemic. When the pandemic struck, marginalized refugees had limited or no access to technology that is crucial to online learning. 

In commemoration of this month’s World Refugee Day, His Excellency Abdul Aziz Al Ghurair is renewing his commitment to support the education of the refugees in the region. He increases the outreach to 11,000 more students and extends funding to eight more key partners. The Abdul Aziz Al Ghurair Refugee Education Fund supports high-impact education programs that help young individuals access secondary education by providing market-driven courses focusing on vocational and postsecondary levels.

Different stakeholders such as governments, corporations, institutions, and international donors work together to help these refugees get by their educational challenges. The education fund needs more partners globally to help address the current situation. Quality education is one of the top priorities that can help refugees’ have a better future. Empowering them with the right set of knowledge and skills will let them lead productive lives and, in turn, contribute to their respective communities.
