“Emojis” get things moving, with Aide et Action, to alert on the situation of children deprived of education worldwide
On the occasion of International Day of Education (24 January), and as the sector experiences an unprecedented crisis, Aide et Action is launching an information and awareness campaign based on emojis.

In Mali, Aide et Action is developing educational alternatives for thousands of children far from education

Around the world, the COVID-19 crisis has forced countries to close their borders to protect populations from the virus.

Although guaranteed by the International Convention on the Rights of the Child since its ratification by more than 192 states thirty-one years ago, the right to education is still denied today to more than 258 million children who are among the most vulnerable in the world. A shame as we celebrate the 31st Day of the Rights of the Child today.
