We spent another day visiting classrooms full of young Syrian kids. We met children who have come to Jordan from Dara'a (in southern Syria), Damascus, Homs (central Syria), Palmyra (eastern Syria), and many other cities and towns throughout the country. In the face of so much tragedy, it is uplifting to meet students who are excited to learn, instructors excited to teach, and parents proud that their children are back in school where they belong. We hope you enjoy this video of young students singing in a classroom in Azraq.
Tomorrow, we're headed to Za'atari, the main refugee camp in Jordan. UNHCR is organizing a visit so we can learn more about programs offered to refugees there. Looking forward to sharing what we learn during our time there.
