Amal and George Clooney's Foundation Will Fund Public Schools for Syrian Refugees
On Monday, the Clooney Foundation for Justice announced a new partnership with Google, HP, and UNICEF to provide education for more than 3,000 refugee children in Lebanon in seven public schools, USA Today reports.
The couple said in a statement that the foundation's commitment of more than $2 million toward schooling for Syrian refugees aims to prevent thousands of young people from becoming "a lost generation." Amal, a British human rights lawyer, was born in Lebanon, and spent a great deal of her career fighting for the world's voiceless victims.
"They have been victims of geography and circumstance, but that doesn't mean there isn't hope," the couple wrote in a statement provided to the AP. "Our goal with this initiative is to help provide Syrian refugee children with an education and put them on a path to be the future leaders their generation desperately needs."
Keep up the good work, you two!
