Education in Nigeria

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) has proclaimed 24 January as the international day of education. This is in celebration of the role of education for peace and development. In commemoration of the day, Desert Bloom Advisory calls on governments, civil society organisations and donor organisations to work together to make education a part of refugee relief programmes especially for children from war torn countries.

During the time spent in the refugee camps, children should be able to receive education no matter their state. Going to school will seemingly bring normalcy to their once chaotic lives more so that, when they reintegrate back into their societies, they can continue from where they stopped. Providing education to refugee children will also equip them with knowledge and skills for the job market wherever they find themselves.

Happy international education day!
