Video: Esma from Homs tells why school is so important

12. June 2018 - Syrien
More than 1.75 million children in Syria do not attend school. These are the United Nations‘ estimations. Being a child in Syria means growing up in a surrounding of violence, insecurity and missing structures. Therefore our educational program in the country’s North is one of the most important measures arche noVa is implementing in the Middle East. We enable school attendance for 8 000 students.

Therefore our educational program in the country’s North is one of the most important measures arche noVa is implementing in the Middle East. We enable school attendance for 8 000 students.

In our current video, the eleven year-old Esma and Malik Abdulghany, coordinator of the arche noVa school program, tell us what that means for the children on-site.

In the areas where arche noVa offers education, no reliable public structures and money in the educational sector are left. Our project supports children who would not have a chance to learn otherwise. Next to the regular classes at 9 schools, arche noVa organises summer courses during this summer for the third time. They address children and youths who haven’t had the cance to visit a school for a long time. They get prepared for the re-entry into the coming school year.

Childhood is the most important phase in man’s life. Here it is decided if girls and boys grow up healthy and develop the ability to take their life into their own hands and change their environment in a positive direction. A lost generation impends to grow in Syria.
