No Lost Generation

Right now in Syria, over 2.4 million children have been forced out of school, and nearly 40 percent are girls. Children with access to education must deal with overcrowded classrooms, a lack of resources to provide quality education, and buildings with insufficient electricity, heating, ventilation, water, and sanitation. 

High school graduates are unable to find options to pursue higher education because of the bombardment of thousands of schools. One in three schools cannot be used because they have been damaged, destroyed, or seized.

  • International University of Science & Renaissance (IUSR)

Students who were forced to stop their education can pick it back up at the nonprofit International University of Science and Renaissance (I-USR). It was developed to meet Syria’s need for secondary, higher, and developmental education. It gives displaced Syrian students access to university education.

Success Story:

Noor, 22, who was pursuing a bachelor’s degree, was forced to flee her home and studies in search of safety.
