Challenges in Colombia
- Owing to the Colombian conflict, there are over 7 million domestic refugees. To make things more difficult, in the past two years there has also been an influx of over 1.6 million Venezuelan refugees to Colombia.
- Unemployment among Colombian refugees within Colombia is 58%; much higher than the national average of 10.3%.
- Traumatic experiences, violent upbringings, and poor to no promotion of preschool and kindergarten has led to the unfortunate fact that children early on are already showing developmental deficiencies.
