Hundreds of textbooks burned at hands of ISIS extremists inside Hani Hakuf ´s School in Shaddadi, Syria. April 11th, 2016
As war enters the 8th year, Syria remains ‘at a crossroads’. Needs and suffering of millions of Syrians continue unabated; Syrian war is a ‘collective failure. Education was hit hard by the war in Syria. Before the crisis, Syria had a strong education system with almost universal primary school enrolment and 70% of children attending secondary schooliv. However the worsening crisis is placing an entire generation of children at risk of being lost to a cycle of violence.
Schools have become some of the most dangerous places in Syria, along with markets and hospitals. At least a quarter of schools have been damaged or destroyed. Syria is one of the most heavily affected countries by attacks on education
The war is not finish with the last bullet, or the empty bullet shell, or when the flag is raised. The iceberg of the battle rumbles and extends blurred the horizon. The open wounds of the war write with blood the future of millions of kids. Violence seeps into bordering countries that chaotically absorb a generation destined to grow up in exile. Different curriculums, overcrowding in the fields, serfs of the land ... millions of children grow protected by ostracism.
Time, a time bomb, stagnates in exile and blots the sheets of school calendars that will never return.
