Dynamo spearheads #YouPromised campaign to get Syrian child refugees into school

April 19, 2018

In 2016, world leaders made a public promise to get every school-age Syrian refugee into full-time education. Two years later, less than half of those children have access to schooling. 

British magician Dynamo is working with children’s charity TheirWorld to hold those world leaders to account for that broken promise. Last year, he traveled to Lebanon to meet Syrian children who haven’t made it into the school system, and toured what school facilities were available. In a few days, both he and TheirWorld president Sarah Brown will travel to Brussels to discuss the situation with world leaders, and they’d like your support.

The campaign isn’t looking for money, though donations are no doubt always welcome. Instead, you can support the campaign by signing this petition and using the #YouPromised hashtag on social media.
