Syria: Seen and Heard

Learn how to lead a campaign to ensure Syrian children are Seen and Heard.

On 15 March 2014 it will be three 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.

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.
