Currently, humanitarian actors allocate only 3.6% of their budgets to investments in formal and informal education programs. Compounding this lack of investment in education is the growing problem of book deserts. In many refugee camps and low-income host communities, it is difficult or virtually impossible for families to get their hands on reading materials. Unfortunately, this has a negative impact on childhood development of pre-literacy skills that assist with language acquisition and socio-emotional development. We’re not satisfied with this reality. Are you?
