A Community School For Everyone
A Syrian family launches a community school for children from all nationalities in Egypt
In UNICEF, a key slogan is “No lost generation”. Following this motto, UNICEF works with different partners to meet the needs of deprived and vulnerable children across Egypt. Among those children are Syrian children who were uprooted from their country after more than 8 years of a terrible war and who face many challenges in their host communities.
Many Syrian children are leaving school for different reasons. Some simply because their parents cannot afford it, others are facing bullying or language barriers. UNICEF works in Gamasa, New Damietta and several other areas where Syrian communities are located to provide psychosocial support to parents and children.
UNICEF provides financial and technical support to child protection and social rehabilitation services. In this photo essay, we explore the story of a Syrian family who created a community school that leaves no child behind.
