We have built 1,000 earthquake-resistant home with local materials and solar panels and we are building 3,000 more for vulnerable people as another harsh winter looms around the corner. https://t.co/cZ07yvaDpE
Lower Shikh Misri School in Jalalabad, which @Refugees built thanks to @SaudiFund_Dev and that I visited last week, has put a roof over the heads of more than 5,500 smart young students, who before, were studying in tents. https://t.co/TTdRnTpN9x
I met Nausheen* in Jalalabab, #Afghanistan. She is one of the 1.1M people who returned home after decades of conflict and turmoil.
She told me the support she and her husband received from UNHCR when they returned has transformed their lives. https://t.co/bXROhWuboA
What’s the difference between a properly resourced operation and an underfunded one?
Having just visited Afghanistan, I know the answer.
UNHCR is being generously supported by 🇺🇸🇪🇺🇯🇵🇨🇭🇫🇷 and the funding is making life-saving changes to displaced Afghans and those returning. https://t.co/LT3ridvny8
At just 27, #Afghan refugee Mursal Azizi is the sole breadwinner for her family. They now live in #Pakistan , where refugees are not allowed to work.
Remote, freelance work is allowed. Thanks to @yagankarafg , she is working as an animator. https://t.co/QOSSmirrPB
Since the #IBelong campaign started, we've seen huge progress to #EndStatelessness. Yet millions more remain without a nationality or are at risk of statelessness.
It can mean no access to education, birth certificate, or no right to get married.
We simply need more action. https://t.co/OlFBB48J2B
Whilst a few refugees are returning home to Afghanistan, Pakistan continues to generously open their schools for refugees.
We must continue to invest in #education opportunities wherever Afghans have sought safety and shelter. https://t.co/KBMrDgMRNW
Language classes, and computer & coding lessons.
Continued investment in education and learning initiatives is vital for women, especially those living with a #disability, returning home to Afghanistan as they work to rebuild their lives after decades living as refugees. https://t.co/ZMRjPQgr07
The young girls I've met in #Afghanistan and #Pakistan are bright, determined and want to learn. Investing in their education is an investment in the future of Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Ensuring refugee children, especially girls have access to education is a priority for UNHCR. https://t.co/eAASddKWsz
