#YouPromised: Send Yalla's message to world leaders

In 2016 world leaders promised to give the funding needed to get 1m Syrian refugees into school.

Tell world leaders they must take urgent action to get every Syrian refugee child into school.

Education is vital for every child - but particularly during humanitarian emergencies such as conflicts. Children need safe spaces to learn and be protected from the risks of child labour, child marriage and exploitation.
 
But more than five years after war erupted in Syria, hundreds of thousands of refugee children and youth whose families fled to neighbouring countries are out of school.
 
The governments of Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan - host to huge numbers of Syrian refugees - have been trying their best to accommodate as many children as possible into their state school systems. But they desperately need financial aid from the international community.
 
Why send a message?
 
In February 2016, world leaders meeting at the Supporting Syria and the Region conference in London promised to give the funding needed to get one million Syrian refugees into school in the 2016-17 academic year. Progress has been made - but a lot of the pledged money has still to be delivered, leaving hundreds of thousands of children out of school.
 
Urgent action is needed if huge numbers of young people are going to avoid spending another year out of school.
 
Please add your name to the growing movement calling on the co-hosts of the Syria conference to keep their promise and help to get one million refugee children into school and learning.
