Higher Education for Refugees

When people are forced to flee violence to another country, getting an education often becomes a lower priority than simply surviving. It's a situation that can lead to a lost generation. A generation that lacks the skills to earn a living either in their adopted country or their own homelands. And it's a problem the United Nations has warned about. It says that only one percent of refugees worldwide has access to higher education. But hidden in those numbers has been one outlier.
