(A World at School) – Girls are more than twice as likely as boys to drop out of school during humanitarian emergencies such as wars and natural disasters. About 39 million girls had their education disrupted by emergencies in 2015 – leaving them vulnerable to exploitation during crises and in danger of having their education ended permanently. A new briefing paper published today by Theirworld – the children’s charity behind A World at School – highlights how girls’ education is disproportionately affected during and after emergency situations.
