A beating heart for Syrian children

Published on Thursday, 10 November 2016

“It is a project that our company has chosen to support because it is in line with Enel’s values and its new approach to business and support to communities, particularly to the most vulnerable such as children, who lose the opportunity to study, in addition to being involved in a tragic situation. ”

– Angelica Carnelos, Counselor for Enel Cuore Onlus

Recently, we made an initial assessment of the program along with some representatives of the Leadership Giving Private Sector Partnership section of UNHCR. 

“The project has so far enabled more than 30 thousand children to attend remedial classes, and many have had access to psychological counseling and therapeutic assistance. Thanks to the support of Enel Cuore, it was possible to form and strenghten the teaching staff, reaching over 360 teachers from the beginning of 2016. ”

Since 2012, UNHCR is working with the program Educate A Child (EAC), which helps tens of thousands of refugee children to attend school in Africa, Asia and the Middle East. 

“In these years of endless conflict, education is the best investment you can make for Syrian children. ”

– Lionello Boscardi, Chief of Leadership Giving Private Sector Partnership (PSP) UNHCR Global

Educate A Child is a project born from the program of the Education Above All (EAA) foundation, which has as its main objective to ensure access to knowledge, and therefore the opportunity to change their lives for the better, to the largest possible number of children worldwide.
