Impact of the UKraine Crisis on Education
The ongoing conflict in eastern Ukraine is one that calls for attention. The calamity has taken many innocent lives. Events in the country have been put to halt as a result of this crisis. Workers are unable to attend to work because it is not safe. Similarly, students cannot attend school because school buildings have been destroyed. Such disasters greatly affects a child’s life and future. If children are unable to obtain an education, eventually they become vulnerable to traffickers and militant groups. This in turn becomes another problem for the world.
To avoid such a turn out, UNICEF plan on raising funds to help save the future of these young people. Part of the funds would be used to purchase learning supplies, rebuild destroyed school buildings and train teachers to provide counseling for children. The money will also provide aid for about 580,000 children and assist another 300,000 children to further their education. Every child deserves an education; a quality one for that matter.
