Education is vital if one is to maintain livelihoods; it is also the main gateway to development, security, prosperity, understanding, acceptance, respect and peaceful- coexistence among others. Lack of education therefore has the reverse effect: it is a major barrier to building a better life and ensuring stability. In war zone areas, the situation is even worse, because populations are often drawn into conflict unwittingly. Lack of education can exacerbate hostile relationships between groups and there is no mechanism by which they can work through disagreements peacefully. As a consequence, education is very much needed as a means through which people can reflect on their differences, understand the ways in which differences can also be strengths, and work together to create a shared future. Education is therefore a way through which awareness can be created and can prevent different kinds of opportunists from using and fueling conflicts by using lack of education or their illiteracy.
