Suffer little children

The number of children living in conflict zones is higher than at any time since the Second World War. 250 million young folk worldwide living amidst violence. One in every nine children is raised in a conflict zone, according to UNICEF. In 2015 alone, some 75 million children were born into war-zones.

1,200 schools destroyed and 600 teachers killed by Islamist extremists Boko Haram in Nigeria is just the tip of the iceberg.

Every day, the report said, an average of four schools are targeted by violent attacks. This has led to a staggering 75 million children between the ages of three and 18 without access to kindergarten or school.
