UNHCR — United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees

The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees was established on December 14, 1950 by the United Nations General Assembly. The agency is mandated to lead and co-ordinate international action to protect refugees and resolve refugee problems worldwide. Its primary purpose is to safeguard the rights and well-being of refugees. It strives to ensure that everyone can exercise the right to seek asylum and find safe refuge in another State, with the option to return home voluntarily, integrate locally or to resettle in a third country. It also has a mandate to help stateless people.

All PLANET EARTH groups supports UNHCR for all the  humanitarian  work it does.

The school consists of a large tent, a whiteboard and a large rug the children sit on. There are no desks and the children keep their books on their laps. All of the students take classes together, regardless of age or Grade level.
