A year ago, Osama Mohsen, a Syrian soccer coach and civil war refugee, started a promising new life here on the outskirts of Madrid after enduring an infamous fall.
In September 2015, as Mohsen tried to run across the Hungarian border while holding his son in his arms, he was tripped by a camerawoman reporting from the scene. Footage of the episode went viral on social media, providing a vivid reminder of the plight of Syrian refugees, forced to flee a civil war only to find themselves facing significant risks — and, at times, significant opposition — as they sought safety in Europe.
In South Africa, the poorest children have three times fewer opportunities to complete secondary education, the quality of education is poor and violence is present in schools.
In 2014, UNICEF has developed a sports program through which 3,517 students have received training in personal knowledge, gender, reproductive health, school violence and sports programs.
The Children's Educational Movement Clubs are playing a key role. Organized in schools and composed of young volunteers committed to human rights, they aim to promote the education of girls and eliminate negative practices for children. We have launched more than 10,000 clubs and conducted workshops for 1,500 children on leadership in sport.
