Girls are giving the opportunity to attend school

War and conflict has a devastating effect on the education and development of young people. According to UNESCO 58 million children are missing out from school and the majority of them are girls.

The Swedish Postcode Foundation has since the start of 2016 been supporting a Concern project to provide access to education to 5 600 Somali and Syrian children and has enrolled more than 100 volunteer teachers.

Concern Worldwide is an international NGO which works with communities in some of the most vulnerable and poorest countries in the world. In 2015, Concern directly supported 7.6 million beneficiaries through development and emergency response in 28 countries.
