Education: A Basic Right for a Better Future

Education is vital to UNHCR's work, which is why we want to encourage people to look at the resources we can put at your disposal.

This section of UNHCR's website provides a wide range of educational materials, ranging from publications and posters to DVDs. These are ideal materials to help children and young adults learn more about refugee issues.

There is also a section on Lesson Modules. These are specifically designed materials to help teachers everywhere integrate refugee issues into the classroom in innovative and exciting ways.
