    “I love school because I have so much fun,” says Hasan, 7, who had never been to school before fleeing east #Aleppo with his family almost 2 months ago. “For the first couple of weeks Hasan didn’t speak to other children,” says his teacher. “He slowly started interacting with everyone and has gained confidence. Hasan is now one of the brightest students in his class.” Hasan is attending a UNICEF-supported school in Jibreen along with more than 600 displaced children like him. #Syria © UNICEF/Syria/2017/Al-Issa

    6-year-old Huda and her friend attend Arabic class in one of 17 classrooms rehabilitated by UNICEF and other education partners in Jibreen. The makeshift school now welcomes 600 displaced children, bringing some critical structure, fun and routine into their lives. UNICEF provided the children with new school bags and stationery. #Syria © UNICEF/Syria/2017/Al-Issa

    Here comes the plane! Can you imagine a world without imagination? There probably would be no books, no art, no science, no inventions, no collaborations… And it all starts at a very young age! Neuroscience confirms that when you play by pretending to be something or someone else with young children, you’re actually helping to boost their brain at an age when they are making even more connections than adults. #EatPlayLove #EarlyMomentsMatter
