After fleeing Boko Haram violence several months ago, Modu is finally returning to his hometown with his family. Like many other children in the region, he is happy to be back in school and working hard for a better future.

UNICEF aims to reach 586,400 school-aged children, including adolescents, with safe learning environments and learning materials by the end of the year.

In northeast Nigeria, over 4.7 million people are in need of food assistance and some 400,000 children are at imminent risk of starvation. Almost 2 million people have been displaced. Most are living without adequate nutrition or clean water. And over half-a-million children have lost access to education. Many of the areas affected are inaccessible due to ongoing conflict and insecurity – so the final numbers of those in need are likely to be far higher.
