The ongoing conflict in Syria has become the worst humanitarian disasters in the world today, with overwhelming numbers of people fleeing the country. Since 2012, more than one million refugees have fled across the border to Lebanon alone. Among the worst affected are children: just one in three Syrian children registered with the United Nations in Beirut received a formal education in 2015. This project provides education and psychological support for vulnerable Syrian children, ensuring they can keep up with classwork and have transport to and from school, helping take their minds off their past and onto a brighter future.

Fatima’s Story

Fatima is a mother of four children—three girls and a boy. They lived in northern Syria when the fighting forced them to flee. Initially, Fatima thought they’d be able to return after a few months. But two years later they are still staring at an uncertain future. “It’s not easy for us,” Fatima says. “It’s so expensive and work for my husband is not so good.” But she smiles as she explains how the school has changed her children’s lives. “My children used to sleep all day, but now they bounce out of bed before dawn,” she says with a big smile. “They are so excited to go to school and learn!”
