Supporting Refugees through Adopt-A-Future

UNA, the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), and USA for UNHCR are working to prevent a lost generation by giving refugee children the education they need to build a better future.

The Problem:

  • 70.8 million people across the globe have been forcibly displaced due to war and persecution. 25.9 million are refugees, more than half of whom are children.
  • Only 61% of refugee children are enrolled in primary education, compared to a world average of 91%.
  • Refugees face numerous obstacles in accessing primary education, such as the recognition of certification of previous studies, different languages of instruction and curricula, family economic issues and problems created by escalating conflicts.

We are working together with USA for UNHCR to prevent a lost generation by educating refugee children in camps and other settings around the world — but we need your help.



Adopt-A-Future’s eight objectives aim to:

When a child receives primary education, a door to the future opens. Learn about refugees who are pursuing higher education degrees online from the camps where they live.
