Understanding the Syrian Crisis through Virtual Reality

Understanding the Syrian Crisis through Virtual Reality

Youth around the world are making pinwheels for the Healing Classrooms Challenge. The Bezos Family Foundation will match their efforts with up to $400K in funding for the International Rescue Committee’s Healing Classrooms program, which provides Syrian youth with safe and nurturing classrooms. American Challenge participants will meet their Syrian peers—beneficiaries of the Challenge—in a live conversation with Global Nomads Group on April 21, 2016. Students at participating schools will have the chance to submit questions in real-time, which will then be answered by educators and students at Healing Classrooms in Lebanon.

Learn more about the Healing Classrooms Challenge at www.studentsrebuild.org/syria and RSVP for the webcast today: https://plus.google.com/events/cv4d0n. Classroom curriculum relating to the challenge will help teachers create meaningful lesson from this global crisis. Below are videos of some of the Syrian refugee students, several of whom will be joining the webcast tomorrow:
