Over 3 million children in Northeast in need of emergency education support

More than half of schools in the northeast Nigerian state of Borno are closed with millions of children unable to start school this year due to the ongoing threat of Boko Haram, the United Nations children's' agency said on Friday.

He disclosed that 1,400 schools were destroyed; 2,295 teachers killed, while 19 000 teachers were displaced by the insurgency in the region. An estimated 3 million children are in need of emergency education support.

"Also, we are establishing over 350 temporary learning spaces, and distributing nearly 94,000 packs of learning materials that will help children to get education, " she said.

Forsyth who stated that three million children are in need of emergency education support at the start of the new academic year just starting, added nearly 1,400 schools were destroyed in the crisis with the majority still unable to open because of extensive damage or because they are in areas that remain unsafe.

Forsyth said almost one million children have been forced from their homes by the crisis with 450,000 children under the age of five expected to suffer from severe malnutrition this year.
