Delivering Education: Mobile School Bus, Syria

Aya, 10 years old, has been displaced for three months. Her family was forced to flee in the middle of the night because their neighborhood was hit by shelling. 

To stop the conflict robbing children of their education, Save the Children and its partner Shafak have turned four buses into brightly painted mobile classrooms. The aid agencies take school to some of the 575,000 displaced children at the heart of the crisis.

The mobile classrooms teach core subjects such as Arabic and math, as well as providing structured emotional and psychosocial support along with games to help children recover from the traumatic experiences they have been through. Each supports around 80 children at a time.

Aya says that she's not scared in the bus, and that her favorite subject is Arabic. She hopes to become a doctor so she can help the Syrian population.

Due to COVID-19 rules, the busses have moved to a distance learning model. Teachers film themselves giving lessons in the bus and send them to their students via Whatsapp. They also provide educational activities, hold discussions and set homework and classes are delivered to the same students who were enrolled before the suspension of schools.

Thanks to the support of people like you, Save the Children is able to continue reaching the most marginalized children. Thank you for your support!
