Support a Syrian girl, now living in a refugee camp in Jordan, to go to school and receive an education.

“ It was very scary in the war. We lived in fear. We used to hear the guns, the shooting and the killing. Thank God now we live safely and we are studying again.” - Alima,* a Syrian teenager. 

School attendance for Syrian girls is increasingly becoming a problem as girls drop out of the education system to help earn an income for their families. To compound this, some parents place a lesser value on the need for girl’s education, compared to boys.

It is so important that this generation of children do not miss out on education.

Your gift will help a Syrian girl stay in school with programs targeted to educate parents, and the girls themselves, of the importance of completing their education. These sessions focus on preparedness for school and follow up to ensure that girls are attending their lessons.

*Alima’s name has been changed to protect her identity.
How Gifts for Peace work

More ways to take action

Right now, children are starving to death in South Sudan. Please give an urgent gift today to halt this famine before it kills even more children.

Take the Act for Peace Ration Challenge and eat the same rations as a Syrian refugee during Refugee Week (June 2018). Raise money to support refugees who have lost everything, and challenge perspectives – including your own.

Right now, thousands of innocent people are fleeing Syria every day to protect their families from bloodshed, violence and death. We need your support to provide emergency relief packs to the families fleeing in Syria.
