Due to the coronavirus, various restrictions have been imposed around the world, including lockdowns. Various educational institutions including schools and colleges are closed. The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) fears that even if the Corona ban is lifted, 11 million girls will not be able to return to school.
The head of the organization, Adre Azule, expressed these fears during a visit to the Democratic Republic of Congo on Thursday. He lamented that the closure of schools in Corona in many countries was unfortunately causing this loss.
“We estimate that 11 million girls worldwide will not be able to return to school,” said the UNESCO chief. Adre Azule visited a high school in Kinshasa, the capital of the Congo. The 2020-21 school year has started in the country a few days ago. Concerned about the issue, the former French culture minister said he would launch an awareness campaign.
“Unfortunately, education for girls is still very unequal,” said Adre Azule. He mentioned that the issue of girls’ schooling is a priority of UNESCO.

Experts fear that school closures could have a major impact on children’s lives. In underdeveloped and developing countries, a class of people feared that even if they opened schools, they would not send their children to school. Azule said that the fear is not unfounded.
