360° video: Out of Syria, back into school
DFID used 360 degree video on YouTube to tell an immersive story about the impact of the Syrian civil war on young people’s education:
Step into the lives of two teenagers from war-torn Syria. Look around you: this 360-degree, immersive video introduces you to the real-life stories of Mustafa and Sarah. They both fled the fighting with their families. They left their homelands – and their schools – behind. Now they live in Lebanon, but while Sarah is back in school with the help of UK aid, Mustafa must help support his family.
Around 500,000 Syrian refugee children live in Lebanon – forced to flee the crisis in their homeland, and to leave their school behind.
In the last year alone, more than 200,000 were brought back into school – thanks to a Lebanese government enrolment programme, backed by UK aid and UNICEF.
