Access to secondary education is however essential because it allows children to increase their chances of escaping poverty. High school offers a prospect of the future and hope for these children.

Improving access to education for internal refugees also means enabling them to better integrate into local communities. Getting to know others means defusing the prejudices and tensions that are very present in areas subject to violent conflict.
