Aegean Education Crisis
Education is a human right. On the Aegean islands, 20,000 refugee children and youth do not have access to education while they and their families wait for a decision on their asylum application. This decision can take several months. Yet, this is an issue that is receiving little to no attention from policymakers.
This crisis demands our attention.
Join our call to action and advocate for real solutions to the Aegean Education Crisis.
Aegean Education Statement
This September, children across the world are going back to school. But on the Aegean Islands in Greece, 10,000 don’t have that opportunity. Instead, they will remain in unsafe and unsuitable refugee camps, sharing overcrowded tents housing 6x the intended number.
We have come together as a global community of educators and funders to state that we believe there is a way forward. We believe we have a solution.
