In Syria today, one in three schools is out of service, and approximately 1.75 million children are not in school. The movement of people inside the country also poses an issue, as the few schools have reached capacity. Many cases, these schools are located in specific areas where schools are conglomerated, meaning those in hard-to-reach areas are left behind. Girls are disproportionally impacted, and without future opportunities, are forced to cope through younger marriage.
NuDay's Future Generation Schools are places for children - especially girls - to make new friends, bringing smiles to their faces as they work past their traumas and once again resume life as children. Students are provided school supplies and are able to take fully-accredited classes led by qualified professionals - many of whom are women. Female teachers allow girls to envision themselves in their places, opening doors for their futures. Science and computer labs inspire STEM fields for all.
The Future Generation Initiative has over 1,800 students - a number that continues to increase as the situation in Syria shifts. Over 50% of all students are girls, with one school exclusively for girls. Schools secure the futures of students and staff members alike, rebuilding the economy alongside minds. Rearing a generation of independent, socially responsible, and self-reliant adults begin with nursing children's resilience and willpower - we are doing just that.
