KS3: ages 11-14KS4: ages 14-16KS5: ages 16+PDF

Oxfam’s youth leadership resources outline how young people in the UK can take action to make sure that Syria’s children, who make up half of refugees, are Seen and Heard. The project involves peer teaching, organising a postcard petition and meeting their MP.

On 15 March 2020 it will be nine years since the conflict in Syria began. 9.3 million Syrian citizens now require humanitarian support – that’s almost half the total population. More than 2.25 million Syrians have fled to neighbouring countries as refugees and more than 100,000 have died as a result of the conflict.
