Education, simply put, is peacebuilding by another name. It is the most effective form of defense spending that there is.           Kofi Anan

 

Education is a significant contributor to peace. Despite this, less than 2% of global humanitarian aid goes towards education. With 75 million children and young people out of school in 35 crisis-affected countries, investment in sustainable education programmes is imperative. Short term, the direct effects of armed conflict on children’s education is clear. Schools destroyed, used by military forces or occupied by displaced people. This impact is magnified in the long-term, spanning past childhood, and impacting individuals, families, and communities well beyond the classroom. The aftermath of the pandemic will also take its toll due to the social disruption it causes. This is an opportunity for Rotarians to facilitate peace within communities across the world through education.
