“I love school because I have so much fun,” says Hasan, 7, who had never been to school before fleeing east #Aleppo with his family almost 2 months ago. “For the first couple of weeks Hasan didn’t speak to other children,” says his teacher. “He slowly started interacting with everyone and has gained confidence. Hasan is now one of the brightest students in his class.” Hasan is attending a UNICEF-supported school in Jibreen along with more than 600 displaced children like him. #Syria © UNICEF/Syria/2017/Al-Issa
