In 2016, a promise was made to 1.7 million Syrian refugee children. A promise of a brighter future. The promise of education.
World leaders pledged to send every Syrian refugee child to school - the kind of promise you don’t break.
Now, over 1 million Syrian refugee children are in school and planning for a better future. For these children, that promise in 2016 was life-changing.
But over 800,000 others are still waiting for that promise to be kept.
Shahed says "When I grown up I want to teach young children… so they can have a better future" - but they can't wait that long. World leaders need to finish the #WriteTheWrong and make their promise a reality for every child.
So this week, let's make sure they hear Shahed's voice - and remember their promise to the children of Syria.
Demand world leaders #WriteTheWrong now!
Help us to keep pressure on world leaders to deliver their promise to fund education for one million Syrian refugees in neighbouring countries. If they are not in school, they are at risk of child labour, child marriage and exploitation.
