Show your Solidarity with Refugees Worldwide
Currently there are 65.5 million displaced people worldwide. The largest ever recorded in our history. Since the start of the Syrian war, 5 years ago, 11 million have been forced to flee their homes. That is half of the country. The worldwide humanitarian organisations are taught to supply and meet the demands of Shelter, Food and Water first, just as it should be. But when it comes to child refugees, education is as important as shelter and clean water for these children. (Source: UNHCR)
According to the U.N. more then half of all Syrian refugees are children under the age of 18 yrs old. The statistics are frightening on the amount of children that have been out of school or have never had a chance to attend school in their young lives. It would take about 35,000 buses to drive every young refugee child back to Syria. (Mercy Corps)
Project Hope 4 Kids aims to change that. We are committed to bridging the education gap for refugee children by preparing them for this transition into a formal education program upon resettlement. Our program of non-formal education not only facilitates the transition from camp to their new future in formal schooling, but also reminds children about the importance of rules and discipline, norms and values, and the strong power of feeling proud of oneself by learning something new.
