COVID-19 LEAVES $6.2 BILLION DOLLAR GAP IN EDUCATION FOR AFRICA’S MOST VULNERABLE CHILDREN

July 13th - As countries are expected to shift funds in the fight against the COVID-19 outbreak, the global pandemic threatens to cause an additional gap of at least 6.2 billion dollars in investments in education in Sub-Saharan region over the next 18 months, Save the Children warned in a new report launched today. Globally, the gab in education spending could be as high as $77 billion.
