The "Education Cannot Wait" Initiative has allocated 750 thousand USD to support around nine thousand children affected by the conflict in Libya, UNICEF has said.

The organization explained on its website that the closure of schools since last March to limit the spread of the Covid-19 left at least 1.3 million students out of school, while conflict-affected children and adolescents were unable to access various essential services.

UNICEF emphasized that the initiative would enable it to help children in Libya, including students with disabilities and children from vulnerable groups, such as internally displaced persons, migrants, refugees, and host communities.
