On 29 January 2017 in the Syrian Arab Republic, Rayan (left), 7, attends Grade 2 on her first day of school at the Kheir eddine Al-Asadi School in the Sakhoor neighbourhood of eastern Aleppo. The third floor of the school building sustained heavy damage during the fighting and remains unusable.  Approximately 600 children are squeezed into classrooms on the remaining two floors.  UNICEF and its partners are conducting rapid assessment of school conditions in East Aleppo.  Of the 422 schools, 217 are either destroyed, damaged or inaccessible.

As of 31 January 2017, UNICEF has supported the re-opening of 23 primary schools in the eastern parts of Aleppo city over the past weeks, allowing nearly 6,500 children to return to school.  UNICEF has provided school supplies, developed an accelerated learning programme and trained teachers to help displaced children catch up on the months and years of education they have missed. Ten prefabricated classrooms were also set up.  An urgent awareness-raising programme has been rolled out to inform children and families about the dangers of unexploded remnants of war. So far the programme has reached 50,000 children. Psychosocial support activities have been provided to 35,000 children in shelters and other locations, to help them recover from the horrors they lived through.

UNICEF provided “schools in a box” and recreational kits to 90,000 children in Idlib and west rural Aleppo. UNICEF-supported professional development courses benefitted 280 teachers.  “Getting children back to learning is one of our key priorities,” said Hanaa Singer, UNICEF Representative in Syria.  “School provides children with a much needed sense of routine, and offers a place to learn, play, heal and reconnect with their childhood.” There is much more work to be done. An estimated 1.7 million children in Syria are currently out of school.
