The Syrian conflict has been ongoing for four years, which have put almost three million Syrian children out of school. This should be seen in the light of that only 2% of the humanitarian aid to Syria is directed on education. The global educational publisher Pearson is now trying to find solutions beyond philanthropy to solve this deficit. They will spend £1 million to help Syrian children with their education in general and further £0.5 million will be directed to two educational centres in Amman, Jordan. However, the publisher’s motives behind the pilot project have come into question in some domains that the object is to expand their market. But this seems more like an ideological claim. Since the altruistic onset to actually help children in the deepest need and to build a better future is the core of the project. Source: the Guardian
