|Schooling is unattainable
The war in Syria is in its ninth year. This is the length of time many Syrian children have been deprived of the possibility to attend school. Many families have been forced to flee, and thousands of children live along the Syrian border. They live in unregistered refugee camps that receive neither help nor support from the international community.
Schooling is unattainable for many Syrian children living in these areas. Under the current circumstances a whole generation of Syrians are at risk of growing up without any education, which may well result in a future characterized by poverty. Furthermore many children are at risk of ending up in early marriages, child labor and militant groups.
But we have found a corridor to the Syrian children on the border and so far erected five schools. This gives hope for the future!
We believe that all children deserve to have a life of dignity with access to schooling. We know that children, who go to school, make a better life for themselves as adults. For children living under the stressful conditions of a refugee camp, schooling may help give a sense of stability to their precarious lives.
The children are the future of Syria. They are the ones, who will have to rebuild the country whenever the war is over.
