TARTOUS, Syria, 7 October 2013 — Many children in Syria face extraordinary challenges to continuing their education. The on-going conflict has left almost 4,000 schools – or around one in five – damaged, destroyed or sheltering internally displaced families. Some 2 million children in Syria have been displaced. 

Tartous, in western Syria, continues to see an increase in people displaced by conflict in neighbouring areas, which is exerting pressure on overstretched resources, including local schools.

UNICEF is supporting a Back to Learning campaign which aims to reach one million conflict-affected primary school-aged children. School bags containing stationary supplies are being distributed to one million children in all of Syria’s 14 governorates. UNICEF also provides other support to children’s education including tents and pre-fabricated classrooms to alleviate overcrowding of schools hosting displaced children.

A big thank you to the State of Kuwait for supporting this project.
