In Syria, the majority of enrolment losses (2.1 million children) occurred in basic education with particularly high losses in Deir-ez-Zor governorate (0.4 million).

In line with the No Lost Generation Initiative (NLG), the INEE Minimum Standards for Education and the IV Sustainable Development Goal, the project aims to ensure access to safe, equitable and quality education for children and adolescents affected by the crisis in Deir-ez-Zor. Access to Education will be foster through the rehabilitation of 29 schools for 266 classrooms, including WASH equitable services that take into consideration both inclusive and gender base approaches following the standard adopted by UNICEF and the Education sector. Student will be supported through the distribution of learning material and stationery. Improvement in quality of education will be supported through provision to teaching forces of Life Skills-Based Education and citizenship education incorporated in formal learning settings.
