Improving children’s future
A hidden tragedy of the war is that even now over 2.5m school-aged children in Syria are unable to go to school. For those born during the war, the likelihood is they have never attended a day of school in their lives. Your generous support is helping reverse this continuing catastrophe.
Providing valuable learning
We are passionate about giving children a safe space to learn, play and connect. Thanks to your donations, we’re taking giant strides in helping the children born into war to gain the education, skills and opportunities they need to grow into the adults who will rebuild their country.
Building educational environments
A dedicated focus is given to support education.
This support includes rehabilitating damaged schools including classrooms (windows and doors), WASH facilities and ensuring adaptation to receive children with disabilities, in addition to repairing school furniture.
Rehabilitation activities improve and increase safe access to schools and ensure children are receiving education in a safe and protected environment. Furthermore, we provide school bags and stationery to support schools. Regarding the logistics, we support schools with fuel for heating, running costs, salaries for teachers, stationery, and cleaning materials.
HIHFAD also provides remedial classes to children who couldn’t attend and/or finalise the last semester properly due to displacement or lack of supported schools in addition to psychosocial support (PSS) provision and interventions to students as well as caregivers. It’s worth mentioning that HIHFAD’s protection department is involved in PSS interventions in schools for students and caregivers.
