More than one-third of children not in school in the world live in war zones. In order to achieve 12 years of education for every girl, more of the world’s attention must be focused on these neglected children.

Syria's crisis is one of the world’s most acute humanitarian emergencies. Improving access to education for displaced and refugee children from Syria is a high priority for the Malala Fund.

  • Lebanon:

    On her 18th birthday, Malala visited Lebanon to open a new school financed by the Malala Fund and named in her honour. The Malala Yousafzai All-Girls School was established by the Kayany Foundation and provides non-formal education for adolescent Syrian refugee girls in the Bekaa Valley.

  • Jordan:

    The Malala Fund currently funds programs in Za’atari and Azraq refugee camps. We support Save the Children to offer information technology courses for adolescent girls in Za’atari; and UNICEF and UNHCR to offer tutoring, transportation, and eyeglasses for students in Azraq camp.
