Supporting Refugees through Adopt-A-Future

UNA-USA, the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), and USA for UNHCR are working to prevent a lost generation by giving refugee children the education they need to build a better future.

70.8 million people around the world have been forced to flee their homes in search of refuge from conflict and persecution. 25.9 million of these displaced are refugees, more than half of whom are children. The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) is working to prevent a lost generation by educating refugee children in camps and other settings around the world, but they need our help.
