Syrian refugee children in a Lebanese school classroom

The UK is supporting efforts to get Syrian refugee children back into school, both inside Syria, and in neighbouring countries such as Lebanon and Jordan - to help prevent a lost generation.


The conflict in Syria has displaced millions of people inside the country, and over 3 million Syrians have become refugees - more than half of whom are children.


UK aid is providing text books for Syrian and Lebanese children in Lebanon, building additional classrooms and supporting non-formal education in refugee camps and settlements.


The UK has committed over £50 million to the No Lost Generation intiative. To find out more, please see
