SITUATION ANALYSIS

• Youth and adolescents (10 to 24 years old), representing over 30 per cent of the entire population, struggled to access learning opportunities, vocations or to have meaningful engagement in their communities. Many adolescents had no access to schooling during the height of the crisis and are now unable to return to school and are in desperate need of alternative pathways.

• In some situations, girls and boys, including recruits and those with disabilities, were also at risk of additional and multiple forms of violence due to their economic vulnerability.
