Lives in crisis, conflict, education


There is a hidden crisis in countries in the world in regions affected by conflict as it has an enormous impact on children’s ability to access education denying them the basic rights to attend school.



Many girls are either denied of an education or have never completed an education and some girls have become mothers of eight, nine or ten children but cannot read or write. We need to do something which will provide girls the chance to stay in school and complete their education, especially in poor remote areas. They have no advocate and no voice to give them this right and the situation is getting worse.


Girls as young as 11 year olds are offered marriage and these girls are determined to marry as culture and society dictates but this has a detrimental effect on the future of their life as they have no prospect of employment and are financially dependent on the husband for the rest of their lives. Charities need to work on projects which provide a pillar of support for these girls and appoint mentors so these girls can see the bigger picture of life and marry when they truly ready.


The crisis of schooling is not localised to South Sudan but the current situation in Syria has displaced young children – before the war nearly every child had a primary education. As many as 22% of the 22,000 state schools are unusable for education purposes. Consequently, conflict impacts millions of children in the short term and effects their future for years to come.


Where there are conflicts, children are more likely to form themselves into gangs, be attracted and recruited by armies, and take part in sexual violence and so on.


When these conflicts end, funding rarely restores the situation. Charities need to help here. To curtail this, the UN needs to play a larger role in bringing an end to the destruction of schools and education centres and their use by armed forces, armies and government during a countries conflict.


Parents are afraid as one child said, “…they were hitting schools. Many children died so we got scared and stopped going to school. No children would go to school, it was too dangerous,” Saba, 13, year old in Syria.


Improve Tuition is seeking to partner with some reputable world charities who can organise internet support in these countries so online tutoring classes in maths, English and science can be offered  through tutors and teachers outside these conflict countries.
