“My name is Father David Holdcroft, SJ regional director of Jesuit Refugee Service in Southern Africa. Today there are about 55 million refugeed and forcible displaced people around the world, but 80% of those are young people, so it is essential that these people have access to education; not only young men but young women, handicaped people, women who have married young and need to come back to education, all kinds of people. Beacuse these people will build the future. It is also essential that the education is not just teaching people how to read or write but to think and to take a possitive attitude and contribute positively to societies of which they will be part. Our world is people, we make our world so let’s educate people for our world.
