Main Barriers to Education
- Post Conflict
- Insecurity & Instability
EAC is partnering with UNHCR to bring quality basic education to refugee children in multiple projects in 12 priority countries. Refugee children are some of the most marginalized when it comes to accessing primary education as they have been forced from their homes, into a foreign country, often with a different language.
UNHCR reports that the main groups of people of concern in Iran in 2014 are: Afghan refugees, most of who arrived before 2001; and Iraqi refugees, the majority of who were registered in 2002 as refugees. Almost all refugees live in rural and urban areas, with just 3 per cent residing in settlements allocated for Iraqi refugees.
