If you ever lose faith in the power of hope, not to mention the importance of never giving up, remind yourself of the story of Mohammad Kosha. A 16-year-old Syrian refugee living in Lebanon, Mohammad has overcome obstacles that most of us cannot even imagine, in order to excel in his education. At a meeting in London in February, international donors recognized the importance of education for refugees, promising to get all of Syria's refugee children into school by the end of 2017 .Today, about 1 million Syrian refugee children aged 5-17 – roughly half the total – are out of school.The February conference was supposed to produce solutions that would ease the burden on Syria's neighbors. Host country governments did their part, preparing in advance their plans for delivering universal education to refugee children. More than 80,000 Syrian refugees now in school in Lebanon are at risk of losing their places.The human consequences of the education crisis among Syrian refugees are impossible to miss.
