Nigeria’s ‘mega schools’ for Boko Haram victims

Opposed to western education, Boko Haram launched its school bombing campaign and began kidnapping girls in 2009.

So-called “mega schools” have been opened in northeast Nigeria to take in around 50,000 orphans of war.

Boko Haram fighters have destroyed classrooms, killed teachers and kidnapped students in 10 years of fighting.

As the public school system is rebuilt in Borno State, experts say children need other help too.
