Originally from Darayya, on the outskirts of Damascus, Haytham Matar is one of the many refugees who left their homes when the shelling became too dangerous in 2012. He and his family sought refuge in Khan Eshieh camp. His case illustrates the situation of internally displaced youth whose education has been disrupted as a result of the conflict in Syria.

“The world needs to care because the situation of Palestine refugees has never been as critical since 1948 and 1967, because the lack of political horizon and personal opportunities is draining them of their hope, creativity and resolve,” says UNRWA Commissioner-General Pierre Krähenbühl
An UNRWA education is more than a school, bigger than a book. The impact of our education programme goes beyond the classroom, ensuring that children can learn within a safe and accessible environment and pursue their dreams for the future. All of this is made possible with the support of generous donors like the European Union, who help ensure that UNRWA is able to go beyond the front lines in delivering education to Palestine refugees.
