At Hurras, we place great importance on educating our children on how to care for and protect themselves, and how to enjoy a healthy life. Our goal is to raise awareness on the dangers they may face in times of crises and war, and to help them understand and cope with the different types of abuse and exploitation they may face.
To this end, Hurras developed a set of child-friendly educational materials to instill safe behavior in children, improve their quality of life, and reduce the risks of death, injury, trauma, exploitation and disease.
Education is a basic right for children. It is a vital tool to restoring a sense of normality and laying the foundation to rebuild society. Our awareness campaigns focuses on the importance of restoring the country’s education system and returning children to safe schools. The campaign also aims to raise awareness amongst some communities on the value education, to instill a love for knowledge and reading in children, to develop their ability to communicate, and to understand the importance of sports and play in child development.
We believe children should know, understand and enjoy their rights as defined by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. Educating children about their rights and the rights of others will help them to avoid abuse and exploitation, express their fears and learn to whom they can turn to for help.
This campaign aims at raising awareness of children’s basic rights such as the right to life, education, having a name and a nationality, equal opportunities for boys and girls, and living in a safe and caring environment, in addition to the rights of children with special needs and those who are refugee. The campaign presents eye-catching posters that reflect the colorful dreams that our children have for their future.
We believe that providing psycho-social support to children during war is vital to help them recover and restore their sense of safety and normality. To this end, Hurras launched several awareness campaigns to encourage children to resume normal activities such as exercise and group play, and offer alternatives if they cannot practice them. The material also helps them deal with traumatic situations. It helps them understand these situations, express their feelings of pain, fear or loss, and talk about their dreams and wishes in life.

Education & parenting
Hurras recognizes the importance of care provided to children by their parents, the family, teachers and other individuals working with children. Our main priority is to enable caregivers to play their part in catering towards children’s best interests and supporting their rights.
Our campaigns emphasize positive parenting methods such as listening to children, understanding their world, embracing their views and opinions, and offering them support when they need it. It encourages parents and caregivers to help children find solutions instead of resorting to criticism and pressure, and to set an example for positive attitude and respect.
During times of crises and war, the phrase “Back to school” has a completely different context. It means returning to a normal life, enjoying a safe environment or simply being able to dream about the future. Education is essential to restoring a sense of normality and laying the foundation to rebuild a torn society. This is why we believe that the country’s education system needs to be restored and that children must return to safe schools, where teachers and social workers are efficiently trained to provide socio-psychological support to the children affected by war.
Our “Back to school” campaign is aimed at mobilizing communities, donors, partner organizations and governments to establish permanent or temporary learning spaces or Child-friendly Spaces for children, to help develop their potential and improve their psychological and social well-being.
