(NRC) – Born into an armed conflict, many children and youth in Colombia joined the armed forces or fled their hometowns, foreclosing the possibility of them going to school. Following the peace agreement, both youth and adults in Colombia are now resuming their studies. Several generations in Colombia have been affected by the armed conflict and thousands of people have been trapped in the middle of the violence. As a result, many children and youth have not been able to study. The Norwegian Refugee Council’s (NRC) Arando la Educación project has allowed 7,000 people to enrol into primary and high school, providing them with an opportunity for a better life and future.
