None of us wishes for war and conflict, it is something that scars the earth and the people that unfortunately get caught up in it. Because of the conflict in Syria, which started nearly 10 years ago, an entire generation of children have missed out on an essential upbringing and education. This conflict will not only impact them now but for many years to come. We simply cannot stand by and let this happen. These children need a lifeline and Alhamdulillah Read Foundation is able to provide at least one of those lifelines.
Read Foundation is on the ground in the Beqaa refugee camp, which I myself have visited in Lebanon. It is saving lives and also educating young minds in the process. I am proud to announce that Read Foundation has developed a school in a bus that caters to 300 children and provides them with the tools they need to learn and develop. These children are given books, learning materials, a mobile classroom with screens and Interactive whiteboards and they’re also given daily food, face masks and regular temperature check, due to the COVID pandemic. I urge you especially during this blessed ten days to give whatever you can. This is the best Sadaqa Jaria, providing to orphans and providing to the underprivileged children for the conflict in Syria, providing education and helping them to get through this difficult time.
For just 30 pounds a month, that’s just a pound a day, you can provide valuable education, shelter, food and provision for a valuable orphan today. Simply visit readfoundation.org.uk or call 03000 121 121 now.
Education is a fundamental right for anybody. Not only does it benefit individuals economically it also contributes positively to society. More importantly, it gives a child a ray of hope for a better future.
The School in a Bus project looks to work within the difficult environment of the refugee camps and revive education for many Syrian refugee children.
It has been reported that half of the Syrian refugee children aged 3 – 18 are out-of-school and denied a basic right because of the country’s upheaval. Human Rights Watch has stated that 210,000 school-age refugee children are in donor supported schools, illustrating how donor support is vital to the education of a Syrian refugee child in a time where other systems have failed them.
The project aims to give 300 Syrian children aged 6 – 14 basic literacy and numeracy skills in conjunction with Lebanese educational standards and curriculum. The aim is to enable children to continue into the Lebanese education system.
The unique benefits to the School in a Bus project as opposed to a conventional educational structure is:
- Children in remote areas such as Arsal, Beqaa will now have access to schooling
- Teaching techniques that are child centric, making them diverse and engaging.
The quality of the project ensures that children are taught in a safe and effective environment. Parents and guardians are involved through proper communication and case workers.
