State of Education in TANZANIA
Over 80,000 children and youth in Nyarugusu Refugee Camp face a myriad of barriers to learning.
Refugees and displaced persons are disproportionately affected by the world’s learning crisis due to barriers such as overcrowded classrooms, lack of qualified teachers, and limited to no educational materials. For example, in Nyarugusu Refugee Camp, there is a 1:165 teacher to student ratio. For the Congolese, 45% of girls and boys are in pre-primary, 98% attend primary school and only 60% attend secondary school.
Total number of school-aged children in Nyarugusu: 145,000+
Percent of children enrolled in school: 56%
