Hope for Syrian children: No Lost Generation initiative, one year on.

The Syrian conflict has left an entire generation of children exposed to violence, displacement and a continuing lack of opportunity – with long-term consequences for the Syrian Arab Republic, the region and beyond. One year ago, the No Lost Generation initiative was launched to address these long-term consequences, with the conviction that investment in educating the minds and healing the hearts of Syrian children is fundamentally an investment in the country's future. Since that time, progress has been substantial: by the middle of 2014, around 2 million children inside the Syrian Arab Republic had received some kind of education; over the past year, the number of Syrian children attending school in host countries has grown from nearly 170,000 to around 500,000; and so far this year, more than 660,000 children in the Syrian Arab Republic and in host countries have been provided psychological support.
