“Hope” for tge Education of displaced children

Her name means “Hope”, and it is #hope that she gives to young children.

Amal (Arabic for Hope) is 24 year-old Syrian young woman, she was displaced to the Tishreen area of #Aleppo.
Whilst there, Amal noticed the large number of children who had dropped out of school and decided to help them. Initially she began teaching a small circle of children in a bare room in an unfinished building, with no equipment sitting on the hard concrete floor.

Now, and with the help of a UNHCR Community Based Initiative (CBI) and volunteer local tradesmen, Amal successfully transformed this bare room into a functioning classroom, catering for 45 children.
