Frequently words are not enough to explain the dramatic situations in which forcibly displaced persons live. This section tries to bring you closer to the lives of refugees through with the presentation of audiovisual materials.

JRS videos on education

Jesuit Refugee Service considers access to education a human right and a means to building peace and development. Education plays a prominent role among the services JRS offers to refugees and other displaced persons. Worldwide the organisation provides pre-, primary, secondary and third level education to approximately 220,000 young people. As well as renovating and rebuilding schools, JRS trains teachers and distributes educational materials. Based on this experience of the needs of refugees, JRS also advocates on behalf of displaced children to ensure they are provided with an adequate education.
