EMERGENCY EDUCATION IN SYRIA

Vulnerable children in Syria have experienced war, witnessed the destruction of their homes and been torn apart from loved ones. What they need now is stability - they need normalcy, a safe space and the chance to be children again.

WHY IS EMERGENCY EDUCATION NEEDED?

These children in Syria have experienced war, witnessed the destruction of their homes and been torn apart from loved ones.

What they want more than anything is proper psychosocial support and the chance for normalcy. They need a safe space where they can learn and grow.

These children desperately need education. The war in Syria has been going on for seven years. That's seven years, the same time your own child would spend in primary school, where they've been out of school.

Who will rebuild if no-one has the skills and knowledge to take the country forward in peace? Who will be the builders? The architects? The teachers? The doctors?

READ Foundation and partners have set up a school in Aleppo, Syria - an area just a few miles from the Idlib region, where bombing and destruction is once again making headline news.

HOW WILL MY DONATION HELP?

Your donation will help children receive a primary education in an existing school building (many areas in Syria have seen teachers working unpaid, with few supplies to aid them). Your money will contribute towards teacher salaries, school supplies and operating costs of the school.

READ CEO Jahangeer Ahktar said: “The Syrian crisis is now in its seventh year – imagine a child missing seven years of their education. That’s an entire generation who are denied a basic right all children are entitled to – the right to education.

“We don’t want to sit back and wait until things settle down – these children need our help now.”

Your donation will give hope to hundreds of children in crisis, including those in Syria.
