Pen and hope Campaign
Syria has become a perilous place for all civilians, but the risk of losing a generation is the top concern. It grows with every day that the situation deteriorates.
It is absolutely shameful that the obligation to protect schools is not being respected in this conflict and the long-term war in Syria, endangering the lives of innocent children and dedicated teachers.
It is catastrophic that millions of Syrian children have not had access to education since war broke out.
