Mohammed attends the remedial educational sessions of the Syrian Arab Red Crescent with no absence, which is quite an achievement for the little boy who almost dropped out of school.
Up until the opening of the course in his school in Kherbet Ghazala-Rural Daraa, Mohammed’s attempts to continue school faltered, as his family had to flee several times seeking safety, added to a health issue in his spine that embarrassed him in front of his classmates, the thing that led him to miss out on classes, and caused a decrease in his learning performance.
The commitment from the boy’s side along with the encouragement he received, helped him restore his self-confidence and improved his interaction with his friends and teachers, resulting in better grades, especially in math and Arabic language.
The Syrian Arab Red Crescent implements remedial educational courses within camps, social welfare centers, and many schools in various towns in Daraa, aiming to compensate for the lost periods of education for students and drop-outs affected by the crisis conditions.
These courses cover the subjects of math, Arabic, and foreign languages, and they are carried out in three stages; during the two school semesters and in the summer, with support from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees UNHCR
