We cannot ignore the severity of the learning crisis in South Asia. A predicted 78% of 10-year-olds in South Asia are now unable to read a simple sentence. We must focus on learning recovery now – or an entire generation will pay the price. #TransformingEducation

Young LGBTIQ+ people are much more likely to be bullied, abused and isolated than their peers. Let’s work together to build a world where every child is safe and supported to live proudly as their authentic self. @free_equal
We don't have a minute to lose in ending the global learning crisis. The futures of our children and generations to come hang in the balance. Our goal? To build a world where every child can learn the skills they need to unlock their potential. #TransformingEducation

More than 1,000 people, including over 100 children, were killed by a powerful earthquake in eastern Afghanistan. Since day one, we've been on the ground with first aid and other emergency supplies. Here's how you can help.
Getting a child into school is the first step on the path of their learning journey. Once they're in the classroom, students must be given resources to acquire basic reading and maths skills. It’s what they need. It’s what they deserve. It’s their right. #TransformingEducation
Horrifying, heartbreaking news. Children were among the passengers subjected to unendurable conditions on that truck. Governments must work together to ensure safe pathways for migration. twitter.com/nytimes/status…

$10-$15 per child is enough to help them learn foundational literacy and maths skills. Governments need to scale up investment to tackle the learning crisis. The cost of inaction will be devastating. Children need support, and they need it now. #TransformingEducation
The evidence is clear: we must urgently confront the global learning crisis and help every child gain the basic skills they need and deserve. That’s why we’re calling on world leaders at the #TransformingEducation Pre-Summit to scale up support for, and investment in, learning.
Students around the world have fallen behind in their learning because of #COVID19. We need global commitments on the right to quality education now. The #TransformingEducation Pre-Summit gets underway in Paris on Tuesday. un.org/en/transformin…

UNICEF and our partners will not waver in our work to prevent grave violations against children. With more children affected by conflict, violence, and crises now than at any time since the Second World War, this work has never been more urgent.
Retweeted by UNICEF
Grave violations devastate children, families, and communities – and they tear at the fabric of society, making it even harder to restore and sustain peace, security, and stability. We must refuse to accept violations against children as an unavoidable outcome of war.

UNICEF's report lays out in the starkest possible terms the world’s failure to protect its children from grave violations during times of armed conflict. unicef.org/press-releases…
Retweeted by UNICEF
The @UN has verified over 100,000 children killed or maimed in conflict zones between 2005 and 2020. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. Our new report lays out the world's failure to protect children during war and conflict. unicef.org/press-releases…
Every year, the @UN verifies more attacks on children in war. This is an outrage. But the existence of this data gives us better tools to protect them. UNICEF is calling for states to invest in ways to monitor and respond to attacks on children in war. #NotATarget
During a panic attack, your child may feel like they are losing control, but there are things you can do to help them feel grounded again. #OnMyMind
