The past few months have been busy for students and teachers alike at NuDy's Future Generation Schools.
Our students have been excelling inside and outside of the classroom. With access to formal education, students are beginning to feel like children once more.
For NuDay, schools are not just spaces of learning but of building community, That's why we host what we call "Kid Friendly Zones" events meant to bring families together and celebrate children. Events are held at our schools, in order to ensure a positive connection to our learning centers. During these celebrations, children play games together, receive prizes, and participate in trainings (such as first aid trainings held by the White Helmets), and just exist together.
Your donation is going towards supporting the needs of Syria's youth, one child at a time, be that through eriching their learning experiences, making new friends, or simply coming together in the name of fun.
Celebration at a NuDay School
Nothing like being a kid!

Girls Can Do Science, Too!
By Huda Alawa - Development Director
What do you see?
Molecules, atoms - oh my!
This year with your support, NuDay started a new class for schools: a science lab!
We know that the best way to learn anything is through hands-on learning - be that through writing notes, toying with a computer, or, now, mixing baking powder with vinegar to understand how chemical reactions work. Science classes are lead by our trained educational staff, who are just as excited as we are to be adding this unit to the studies of young children.
For our young girls, the opportunity to take science classes is a rare one - and many are already planning to follow this up with pursuing their medical degrees! There's nothing more we at NuDay love more than a group of strong-minded, insightful girls, ready to contribute their knowledge to the world, all while helping with a good cause!
Our GlobalGiving campaign is still seeking funds to cover the spring semester of the school year and has been expanded to include all of NuDay's three Future Generation Schools. Our schools are one of the few running educational institutions in northwest Syria that inspire independent and critical thinking, honoring the freedom of individuals as they choose their own futures.
Thank you for your unwavering support as we rebuild Syria's minds together.
The fall semester is deep in session and NuDay's students are excited about being back in school. Our students include both internally displaced and local community members, all of whom are happy to see one another and be surrounded by friends once more.
One of our motivated students is Eman, a young girl who survived a bombing that left her and her mother without other family members. Eman was moved near NuDay's Future Generation Schools and was treated for her leg injury. We provided her with a wheelchair and threw her a party, where we all celebrated Eman's participation in school. Making school a joyous occasion and taking the time to recognize our students' perseverance is what makes the Future Generation Schools so special to us all!
At the start of the semester, students were given school and art supplies, getting them excited for the year ahead. Everyone was so happy to be back!
Since launching the GlobalGiving campaign, NuDay has raised over $7,000 for the Asi Camp School. This amount has gone directly towards paying for the school building and salaries of NuDay's fantastic educational staff. We are still continuing to fundraise for salaries to continue the 2018-19 school year, and are working diligently to secure the future for all of Syria.
Thanks again for your continued support. One Person at a Time, One Humanity Closer - to a better future for Syria's youth.
