Since conflict broke out in Syria in 2011, millions have been forced to leave home, including over 5.6 million refugees who have fled to neighbouring countries.
Over 3.7 million children under the age of five have been displaced since they were born.
Despite their plight, however, many refugee children have not lost the hope of studying for a better future in which they can return to their homeland.

Sow your love where there is despair

In Bekaa Valley, Lebanon, where countless tarpaulin-made makeshift tents have become part of the landscape, children play around puddles as the sun returns after the rain.

Catherine (aged 5) is one of the many Syrian refugee children living in settlements here. Not long after her birth, the conflict back home drove her entire family to flee. Four years later, they remain refugees, sharing a two-room tent with another family (13 people in total) and living on meagre humanitarian aid.

For Catherine and other children born in the settlements, home is merely an imagination. Fear captivated them when they heard bombing. Aysha, Catherine’s mother, has noted how stressed her children are, as they fight regularly and refuse to go outside the tent. “My children were born and raised in a tent. There is no tomorrow for them,” says Aysha.

“We’re not capable of dreaming for the future” has become a reality for this generation of Syrian children, but you and I can shine a light and help them out of darkness.
