Recent times have witnessed a shift in humanity like never before, more than 70 million people around the world are displaced from their homes. Fleeing their countries entirely due to persecution, war or violence, almost 25.9 million of these are seeking asylum in other countries, becoming refugees.
According to the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) out of a global population of 7.2 million school-age refugee children, four million do not attend lessons of any kind. Studies show child refugees are particularly vulnerable and are five times more likely never to go to school than non-refugee children on a global level.

Most importantly, make play the source of happiness it should be.
