Join hands with us to reshape the trajectory of education in Syria. According to UNICEF as of 2023, a staggering reality: just 40% of students (equivalent to 120,000 children) are anticipated to achieve the milestone of graduating with a secondary certificate. This vital statistic paints a concerning picture, with graduation rates projected to plummet further to a mere 25% by 2032. In this projection, only 115,000 Grade 12 students are expected to graduate, while a substantial 341,000 students (75%) face the heartbreaking prospect of not completing their secondary education.
One of the biggest barriers preventing our children from accessing quality education: transportation.
The resilient children of Northern Syria have already faced unimaginable challenges due to the impact of war and natural disasters, such as the recent earthquake. Despite these hardships, they are determined to learn, grow, and build a better future for themselves and their communities. The Global School, located just outside Idlib, stands as a sanctuary of learning for 400 elementary students. However, the journey to school has become a significant obstacle, especially for those living in shelters and camps.
Imagine a child’s determination to learn, striving to overcome all odds, yet hindered by the lack of proper transportation. Many students embark on long, arduous treks to reach their schools, often under harsh weather conditions and through unsafe paths. This journey not only jeopardizes their safety but also robs them of precious time that could be spent in classrooms, learning and dreaming.
Every donation, no matter the size, will make a significant impact. Your support will not only transform their lives but also contribute to the larger goal of building a resilient, educated, and sustainable future in Northern Syria.
