Never too late: education to empower Syrian refugee children

A generation of Syrians has grown up abroad after their families fled the war that erupted 10 years ago in their home country. Sadly, many Syrian refugees are still struggling to get their children into school.

In Lebanon’s informal settlements, where many refugee children live without legal documentation, there are serious obstacles to overcome.

The EU supports a group of international and national NGOs to break down the barriers to education. The SHIELD programme is helping Syrian parents realise a simple wish: sending their children to school.
