UN unveils a plan to get Syrian 1 million refugee-children to school. The United Nations Special Envoy for Global Education, Gordon Brown, today said: “While the recent focus has rightly been on refugees entering Europe, there are 4 million refugees – 2 million of them children – who are holed up in Jordan, Turkey and Lebanon, many living on the streets in a crisis which is now of biblical proportions”. Education has not traditionally been considered for humanitarian aid, but the severity of the crisis calls for immediate action. Otherwise Syria risks a lost generation. Plan includes a request of $250 million in new funding to be able to meet the challenge. Source: UN News Centre
