Due to the covid-19 pandemic, schools have been closed all over the world. This violates one of the most fundamental rights of children: the right to education. More than 897 million children worldwide bear the consequences, both in the short and long term. Because for many children with a difficult home situation, school is not just about education, but above all about being able to go to a safe place. In the long term, children who are denied access to education risk ending up in child labour, crime or situations of abuse more quickly.
