The company is supporting UNICEF’s program in Senegal, which aims to give a second chance to the most vulnerable adolescent girls in and out of school, allowing them to master the basics of digital skills including coding as well as app and web development, while learning about innovation and social entrepreneurship.
Education is a lifeline
for children in crises
Wars, epidemics and natural disasters spare no children. More countries are gripped by conflict today than at any time in the past thirty years. Many of these crises span entire childhoods.
For children in emergencies, education is about more than the right to learn.
Schools protect children from the physical dangers around them – including abuse, exploitation and recruitment into armed groups. They provide children with lifesaving food, water, health care and hygiene supplies. And they offer psychosocial support, giving children stability and structure to help them cope with the trauma they experience every day.
Parents and children affected by crisis consistently cite education as a top priority. When children are educated, entire communities benefit.
In 2018, UNICEF and partners helped 6.9 million children gain access to education in emergencies.
