Syria's children being educated in camps

Project involving young men and women brings education to children displaced by civil war.

    A group of volunteers are trying to provide formal education for Syrian children who are growing up in camps.

    The United Nations said that four million young people are affected by the fighting and thousands of children have been internally displaced.

    The group consists of a dozen middle-class young Syrian men and women helping with these classes.
