“Access to education is a fundamental human right. It is essential to the acquisition of knowledge and to ‘the full development of the human personality’ as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states. More than that, education makes us more resilient and independent individuals. Yet for millions of women and girls among the world’s ever-growing refugee population, education remains an aspiration, not a reality.”
Filippo Grandi, UN High Commissioner for Refugees
