Fathima: Can you hear something?
Jamila: Yes it’s a buzzzz kind of sound right?
Fathima: That’s right… but what is it?
Jamila: Fatima, That buzz is everyone talking about the 2 City Nasheed Tour…
Yes! The 2 City Nasheed tour is the event on everyone’s lips.
What’s the 2 City Nasheed tour about?
It’s the biggest nasheed event taking place this December featuring local as well as International artists and its taking place in Pretoria (03 December and Durban(02 December)
Why the need for this event?
The event is in aimed at raising funds that will be directed towards education for the many Syrian children bearing the brunt of the conflict. With their country in turmoil for what looks to be the foreseeable future, education will be vital in helping the children of Syria rebuild the pieces of their shattered lives and land.
Cii Projects have partnered with Syria Relief UK who currently has an education project underway. Syria Relief’s Education Program is expanding rapidly with 70 schools that have requested support currently on the waiting list. Without it, they may be forced to close, leaving thousands of children with no education, endangering their safety and their future.
The situation is getting worse. Official Lebanese statistics have revealed that 59 per cent of Syrian refugee children in the country are not attending school. The statistics of the Lebanese ministry of social welfare found that 488,832 children of school age in Lebanon, who are not Lebanese, are out of the education system.
In a press conference on the issue, Save the Children said 129,697 non-Lebanese children aged between three and six years old do not attend school.
The officials also said that there are 301,466 children between six and 15 years old who are out of school and 57,669 aged between 16 and 18. No further details were given regarding the refugee’s countries of origin.
