The Clooney Foundation for Justice just announced a $2.25 million partnership with UNICEF to fund seven schools in Lebanon to help 3,000 currently out-of-school refugee schoolkids.
“Thousands of young Syrian refugees are at risk — the risk of never being a productive part of society,” George, an actor and activist, and Amal, an international human rights lawyer, said. “Formal education can change that. That’s our goal with this initiative. We don’t want to lose an entire generation because they had the bad luck of being born in the wrong place at the wrong time.”
