Millions of children in crisis and fragile contexts are denied a quality, gender-responsive, safe education that will enable them to thrive into the future. Education is also a key aspect of discussions about the humanitarian-development nexus, as these children and young people are denied the chance to build the social-emotional and academic skills they need to survive.
