Migration

  • 244 million people across the world are migrants
  • Climate change is likely to lead to increasing migration by 2050

Whether people choose to migrate or, as is most often the case, they are forced to do so for reasons related to poverty, conflicts or the environment, migration within or outside a country’s borders puts their children’s schooling at risk. Social fragility, insecurity, language barriers – reintegration in school in the new destination often proves to be a difficult task and there is a high risk of children dropping out of school forever.

Aide et Action International supports the education of migrant children by improving their living conditions, by creating educational alternatives and by sensitising local authorities and population groups about the need for and meaningfulness of living together harmoniously.
