As a result of the conflict in Syria, millions of Syrian children have been without an education. Rethink Rebuilt (RR), the Syrian community in UK, believes in the crucial role of education in helping Syria's new generation to attain a brighter and more peaceful future. Rethik Rebuilt is collaborating with Syria Relief to initiate a project to bring Syrian children back to school. The fundraiing Ghalia undertakes has helped establish Iqraa School, which is fully funded by the Syrian community of Manchester. All types of help has been provided including education, psychological and medical support. Ghalia's and other's efforts ensure that the school has funds every year to deliver education.
