Two years of violent conflict in the Central African Republic have forced these children and their families to leave their homes in fear for their lives and crowd temporary camps for displaced persons.  Amid the chaos, giving these children access to school and learning could provide them with a sense of normalcy and mitigate the cycle of violence. The Global Partnership for Education has provided emergency funding to rehabilitate schools and support community teachers. Much more needs to be done by the international community to ensure these children don’t lose out on their right to get an education.
