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 (IDPs) also poses a struggle, 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. In Asi Camp, there are over 42,000 IDPs, over 30,000 of whom are school-age children with no opportunity to attend schools.
Asi Camp's Future Generation Elementary and Secondary School is a place for children 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 with school supplies and books, and are able to take fully-accredited classes led by qualified professionals. A newly-piloted computer lab ensures that students have a wide breadth of experiences, securing the potential for productive futures.
The Future Generation School in Asi Camp is educating 340 students - a number that continues to increase as the situation in Syria shifts. The school secures the futures of students and 22 staff members alike, as it works towards establishing a baseline knowledge of their world in a scholarly setting. Rearing a generation of independent, socially responsible, and self-reliant adults begins with nursing children's resilience and willpower - and the Asi Camp school aims to do just this.
