Thank you for making portraits for children in Syria!
We know that many teachers use the Portrait Program as a chance to teach their students about the lives and culture of the children for whom they create portraits. Feel free to use the following resources to guide your discussions.
The Syrian conflict has been called the worst humanitarian crisis of our time. Due to years of brutal civil war, millions of families have been displaced and many Syrian children are growing up in refugee camps with no experience of life outside a barbed-wire fence. Each portrait your students create for these children will carry a message of kindness and hope from a different world. Each portrait will help them see the beauty of their inner strength and show them they are not forgotten by you, your students, or the rest of the world.
