“Education closest thing to magic you can give a child”

On Tuesday, SB OverSeas got the opportunity to meet the magician Dynamo and President of TheirWorld Sarah Brown, who are advocating for the right of education for every Syrian child. We were invited by Linda McAvan, a long-time supporter of SB OverSeas.

Dynamo and Sarah Brown both emphasised the importance of education and brought attention to the severity of the situation. With around 2.08 million school-age Syrian children (36 per cent) remaining out of school inside Syria and 689,000 school-age Syrian children (35 per cent) remaining out of school in the five host countries, something needs to be done.

“We don’t know when the conflict is going to end but these children are not getting any younger. It will be the youth of today that will be the future of #Syria. Every child deserves an education”
