Our Education Fund not only helps rebuild the future of Syrian children, but also helps displaced Syrians earn a dignified living by teaching at our schools. We currently provide jobs to over 100 qualified teachers.
Due to the nature of the ongoing conflict, millions of Syrian children have been internally displaced and eagerly await returning to school. Due to the high demand, two of our schools are currently working on a two-shift basis; one in the morning and the other in the evening.
Statistics show that over 5,000 schools have been destroyed and many others are being used by refugees and displaced people. Donating an amount as small as 35p a day will not only provide a child with education but will also safeguard the lives of many generations to come.
Watan UK is now supporting over 1,600 students and over 120 teachers to continue and strengthen the educational system.
We have fitted our schools with new e-systems in order to develop and modernise the educational system in Syria and provide a long-term plan for the improvement of the schools and academic structures.
We pride ourselves on being a strong education-supporting charity, and therefore always aim to strengthen our teachers, provide them with training, and give them an adequate salary to provide a decent life for them and their families. We pay our teachers $125 more than most other charities – this is because we value our teachers and want to provide them with a safe and adequate living in Syria.
We have schools in Aleppo, Idleb, and the Damascus Suburb, with plans to open more schools within the Aleppo, Idleb, and Hama Suburbs in 2017/18.
Providing the necessary resources for students, teachers, and schools is one of the most important things you can provide to keep motivation high for students who are eager to learn and progress. It also helps teachers be able to keep students engaged.
Stationary provided includes whiteboards, workbooks, pens, pencils, rubbers, paper, different sized activity books, recreational items, pencil cases, and back bags.
