The answer to ending the crisis in Syria? Education.

Muzoon Rakan Almellehan was born in 1998, and she lived in the province of Daraa, Azraa city, studied in Syria and moved to Jordan to seek asylum. When she arrived at the Zaatari refugee camp, her main concern since arrival at the camp was the education. Since she joined the school, she started to form campaigns to encourage education in cooperation with "Save the Children" organisation. Her activities caught the attention of UNICEF, the UNHCR and "Save the Children" organization. UNICEF granted her a title of ambassador of education in Zaatari refugee camp.The media delegations came to broadcast her activities, to conduct interviews about what she was doing in the community. The UNICEF staff called her "Malala of Syria." She was impressed by the name before seeing the person. Muzoon and her family were honored to meet Malala, who is considered a symbol of education and who sacrificed her life for the sake of education in the world.
