Hope Collective- Project Generation
There are currently over two million Syrian refugee children in the Middle East that do not have access to education. The UN’s Children Agency has estimated that the war has reversed ten years of educational progress for Syrians. Families often can’t afford school fees and instead many children begin working at a young age or are married off. Another barrier is a lack of schooling offered in their native language and many children have fallen so far behind that they are unable to re-enter into the school system. Finally, many children suffer bullying and violence from their classmates.
We believe that what the United Nations University says is true: “When looking at the long-term, education is the best guarantee for both developing a child’s well-being and the country’s future prospects.”
The Hope Collective is launching schools in the Middle East among some of the most desperate communities that currently have no options for education. Each school will provide quality education for over 100 children by eliminating these barriers and will provide employment and professional development for local teachers.
Join us in bringing hope to the next generation of Syrians.
