Children and adolescents at risk

Children and adolescents at risk are those more susceptible to harm and/or may have limited access to protection and essential services such as education, health care, WASH, and child protection. While most children in EiE settings face at least some risks, subgroups of children may be more at risk due to their socioeconomic level, gender, ethnicity, language, displacement, citizenship status, or disability. Indeed, the children and adolescents who are most at risk in EiE settings often have intersecting vulnerabilities.
