Hêvî Foundation Continues to build School Desks

The Hêvî Foundation team continues to fund the building of school desks in Kobane. So far over 300 desks have already been built and delivered to the local schools.

However, thousands of children continue to miss out on schooling due to lack of basic school supplies including desks. Considering the ongoing war and the psychological impacts on the children access to schooling is an important way of regaining a sense of normalcy and establishing routine.

The children in rural areas remain most at risk and most likely to lack access to education. Hêvî Foundation will continue to endeavor to support the local schools so that as many children can have access to education.

Hêvî Foundation Purchases Desks For Kobane Schools

Hevi Foundation has been working closely with the Education Ministry of Kobane to provide much needed school supplies for the children’s education.

Recently, Hevi Foundation, on request from the Education Ministry commenced purchasing of school seats and desks for Kobane’s schools. The number of desk sets requests exceeds 2000. Currently close to 300 have been built.

However, the number of seats and desks required are so great that further support is required.

Many of the desks are heavily damaged, but some can be recycled back. Still hundreds of children lack access to education and continue to miss out due to basic school supplies. Many of the schools in the provinces have been heavily damaged as a result of the war and are considered unsafe. Much works is required to rebuild these damaged schools before they can function and provide education.

We hope to continue to support the children and the education sector in north Syria.
