Education for Syrian Refugee children

Education for Syrian Refugee children

The Problem

Education for Syrian children has become a casualty of war. School enrolment rates have fallen drastically, not only in Syria but also among children who have fled. Turkey has taken generous steps to provide Syrian children with access to education, yet more than half of the 1.5 million school-age refugee children in those three countries were not in formal education last year.

Syrian refugee families fled to protect their children’s lives, but their children’s futures are now at risk. Rates of early marriage and child labour have risen dramatically among Syrian refugee children mainly due to rise in the costs of standard of living. The longer children are out of school, the less they are likely to return to education.

Despite Turkey’s help, only 325,000 of more than 756,000 school-age Syrian refugees are attending formal schools and education centres. In fact, the number of out-of-school children may be even higher.

The solution

Crisis Aid is on the ground establishing a school for these Syrian children in a town called Reyhanli. We are providing transport, paying tuition fees were necessary and supporting the running cost of other independent education centres.
