An estimated 90 percent of the world’s school-aged children have had their education disrupted by the pandemic, according to UNESCO. We know that before the COVID pandemic, 1 in 5 children and young people around the world were not in school. That’s an estimated 263 million children missing out on an education (UN, 2018). What will we see next for street children who already had so many barriers to entering education, what will the impact be on their learning and their future?
📖85% of street children in Nepal are illiterate.
✏️More than a third of 10–14-year-olds in Nepal are working which means they are unable to attend school full time.
