Although I like to stay hopeful that the Syrian Refugee Crisis is a solvable solution, I have to be realistic and say that it is possible that no solution will ever be found. While the issue is inherently complex and its solution would not be as clear as day, without an overall increase in effort to end the Syrian Refugee Crisis little improvement can be made.
Every day that passes without a solution, Syrian refugee children are losing crucial time in the classroom. While the refugee camps established in Jordan, Turkey and other surrounding countries attempt to provide temporary schooling, the quality of education is not sufficient. But many children are receiving no education at all if their family was unable to enter a refugee camp, and instead fall chance to kidnapping or child-slavery as a result of being displaced from their Syrian home.
Those who are already doing what they can to help Syrian refugees are making a difference cannot end the crisis on their own and need more help. Those who do not support their country’s involvement in what some say is one of the worst humanitarian crisis since World War II hinder the chance to end it. For generations to come the people of Syria will not be the same; education shapes the future for opportunity and success of the Syrian people and without it Syria might never rise again.
“Doing nothing is a policy, too.” Doing nothing will not stop lives from being lost. Doing nothing will not stop bombs from being dropped. Doing nothing will not teach Syrian children to read and write. Doing nothing will not save Syria.
