BEIRUT, LEBANON — Five Syrian refugee children have received a new way to access learning from Christian broadcast ministry SAT-7 from the comfort of their home.
“They cannot go to school, so we took school to their home,” explains Mostafa, one of the young visitors. Three Syrian boys from SAT-7 ACADEMY program Puzzle visited a refugee family in Lebanon on Christmas Day and gave them a portable DVD player and recorded episodes of the primary education program My Schools.
The children were very happy to receive their special gift and opened it straight away to watch My School. The My School DVDs are filled with lessons, including mathematics, languages, and science, to help children at various school levels.
Millions of children in the Middle East are deprived of their right to education. SAT-7 ACADEMY program My School provides children with an opportunity to learn from their homes by watching SAT-7.
Today’s mission: To help children deprived of their right to education
We visited a family that has five children from Syria. All five children of this family do not go to school. We are taking the initiative today to help them with a small thing. We got DVDs of the program My School. This program teaches mathematics and languages to all grades.
I was happy because we gave them the presents. I hope they find them useful.
When we gave them the DVDs and the portable DVD player we were happy to see them happy.
Just like those children, there are many others who are deprived of their right to education and from going to school. We tried today as much as we could to give them their right.
I like Waleed because he is compassionate. I feel we have many common interests between us like football, swimming and basketball.
I want tell every child who cannot go to school to try to get education at home. I advise them to watch My School program on SAT-7 Kids.
I will come and check on them and give them the new season of My School Program. The kids cannot go to school, so we got the school to their home.
I am glad I got to know them today and they let us help them with something simple.
