UN report: Idlib governorate records the highest rate of out-of-school children in 2024

The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) in Syria confirmed in a report that more than one million male and female children do not go to school in the northwestern regions of Syria, an increase of 200,000 children over the period preceding the earthquake disaster on February 6, 2023.

According to the report, Idlib Governorate recorded the highest rate of out-of-school children among all Syrian governorates in 2024, with about 69% of children not receiving their natural right to education.

The report stated that the longer children stay out of school, the less likely they are to return to school.

The report pointed out that Syria Cross-Border Humanitarian Fund supports several educational projects in the northern regions of Syria, and a team from OCHA made a field monitoring visit to Idlib, to visit an educational project supported by the Fund, and implemented by the partner organization “World Vision” for response.

The project supports 18 schools, where boys and girls are educated, providing the schools with furniture, hygiene and educational supplies, and supervising awareness sessions for male and female students. The total number of targeted students is 8,142 children, including 4,118 males and 4,024 females, and 43% of them are displaced from the most affected areas by the earthquakes, according to the report.

The report noted that the preparation for the project began in December 2023, and support for schools began in February 2024. This is underway by providing formal educational services until June 2024, and providing non-formal education services through a summer school beginning in June.
