In light of the Syrian humanitarian crisis, students in Syria suffer from the closure of many schools, either because of the bombing, the displacement of educational staff, or the absence of an entity to support and supervise the schools, which led to catastrophic children dropping out of schools and falling out of education for long periods.
Education support projects are based on providing a safe educational environment for students by sponsoring a number of schools and providing all their expenses, including maintenance, salaries, educational aids, bags, stationery and school clothes for students, in addition to heating in the winter season, to achieve high-quality education inside Syria.
These projects aim to support the continuation of the educational process inside Syria for all students and pay special attention to returning students -who have dropped out- to schools, and to provide these schools with special curricula for teaching dropouts, as they are taught within a short period after which students can complete their education at the appropriate stage for their ages.
In addition to the basic educational services, education support projects provide distinguished services, the most important of which are:
– Case management service: where support is provided for special student cases, connecting them with the service provider and following them up until the stage of improvement and recovery.
– Free transportation service for students who live in remote areas and far from the school and there is no school in their areas.
– devoted Services to people with disabilities, including providing schools with some special equipment, such as special entrances and others, in addition to providing free transportation service to them.
The names of these projects varied and their goal was united, most notably:
Manahel – Hemmeh – Israr – With knowledge, I revive – Education is not waiting – The school is waiting for me … etc.
The number of supported schools by the Takaful Al-Sham reached more than 200 schools, and the number of beneficiaries reached more than 200,000 students and members of the educational staff in the schools of Aleppo, Idlib and their rural.
