They face a lot of challenges which include inadequate food, cloth, shelter, health and education among others. These challenges made them to live a difficult life in the camps or hosting communities pending when they would be resettle back to their original communities. Education in times of emergencies is organised to engage children in learning as a continue process until when they would properly be resettled either in their original community or elsewhere. This paper looked into the need for the children education in the time of the displacement and emergencies, the integration of ICT during the teaching of a particular creative concept (drama) for efficient and effectiveness, difficulties one might encountered when educating children in emergency situation and finally recommendations were also made.
