About the ProjectSince 2011, millions of Syrians have fled to Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey to escape the violence and chaos tearing apart their country. The rapid influx of children into already strained refugee camps has made it nearly impossible to accommodate all of them into a school system that was already extremely limited in the first place. And many of these Syrian students must take on jobs to support their families, forcing them to give up on their education. Now, there are 3 million Syrian children in refugee camps and only 3.8% of them have access to a proper education. These children face a huge risk of becoming a lost generation, and the mission of our #LearnSyria campaign is to change that.
In 2015 we launched #LearnSyria to send Rumie Tablets to children at a school in Reyhanli, Turkey, about a mile from the busiest boarding crossing to Syria. With your support, we were able to send them almost 1,000 more tablets and find tons of great learning resources to include on them. Results have been extremely positive, and we saw a positive impact on mental health, a new ability for students to learn on their own time after work, and increased capacities for schools (read more on our blog).
The huge impact and massive need has led us to expand #LearnSyria to other schools in Jordan and Lebanon so that more Syrian children can continue their education on their own time.
