The girls in these photos have missed out on school because of the crisis in Syria. They're now enrolled in 1st grade, but they should be in 6th.
They are back in school now, stronger than ever, and with great hopes and big dreams for the future.
Globally, 91% of children attend primary school. For refugees, the figure is far lower, at only 61% – and in low-income countries it falls short of 50%. For refugee children, education is a lifeline to the future.
