The Clooney Foundation for Justice is planning on opening seven public schools for Syrian refugee children in an effort to prevent thousands of young people from becoming “a lost generation.”
George and Amal Clooney stated to the Associated Press:
They have been victims of geography and circumstance, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t hope. Our goal with this initiative is to help provide Syrian refugee children with an education and put them on a path to be the future leaders their generation desperately needs.
Clooney’s foundation, along with Google, HP, and UNICEF have partnered together to provide education for more than 3,000 refugee children in Lebanon.
