A Thomson Reuters Foundation news team took part in the last video exchange between students at Connaught Schools for Girls in London and their peers at Al Faloujah/Haifa School from Damascus. Students meet three times over Skype to share their stories and ideas about what quality education means to them, as part of My Voice-My School.
Despite living in very different circumstances, young people discovered they have many things in common, not the least the love for k-pop music. The report highlights these similarities, as well as Palestine refugee students’ plea to world leaders to support their education, after drastic cuts to UNRWA’s budget.
