Funding, Policy and Protection: Delivering a quality education to children affected by conflict in Syria and the region

6 million children affected by the war in Syria are in need of urgent humanitarian assistance. 1.4 million of these children are of school age and are living as refugees in neighbouring countries and more than half of them lack access to education.

As Heads of State and Government arrive in London for ‘Supporting Syria and the Region’ on February 4, 2016, just one month before the 5th year anniversary of the Syria conflict, they have an unprecedented opportunity to reverse this situation and to fix the humanitarian crisis for these children, including its educational dimensions.

The organisations working either inside Syria or across the region with Syrian refugees are calling on the participants in the London conference to commit to ensure all children and young people affected by the conflict have access to safe, quality, and relevant educational opportunities before the end of the 2016/2017 academic year and on an ongoing basis.
