The Chance to Learn Can Change a Child's Life

Syria’s brutal conflict, which has destroyed and damaged 40% of Syria’s schools, has left 2.1 million out of education. North West Syria is facing a crisis of children being out of education due to the influx of internally displaced families. 

Without the chance to learn, children are more likely to be trapped in the vicious cycles of poverty, poor health, forced labour and early marriage. At Syria Relief, it is our mission to get as many children as we can back into school and give them a chance to shape their future.

We are currently running 164 schools across Northern Syria, making us the largest non-governmental provider of education in Syria. Last year alone we opened 107 new schools and helped with the education of 218,164 children. We also provide mobile education centres for children in rural and hard-to-reach areas.

Syria Relief aims to open more doors for Syrian children of this generation and of generations to come. We need your help to give Syrian children the chance of a future. Donate now.

We are investing heavily in the future of Syrian children by rebuilding schools across the region. To find out how you can contribute to the building of a school, visit our major giving page.

Our ambition is to set up more schools across Syria, opening doors of education to hundreds of new students. For that ambition to become a reality, we need your support.
