‘I Started at Zero’: How a Syrian Refugee Is Rebuilding His Life Through Education - Katie Reilly, Time

Nearly 18 months after his arrival in Turkey, Althib has found a way to continue his education. Like thousands of other refugees across the world, he has been taking online courses offered by universities as far-flung as Amsterdam and Baltimore, through programs that offer free classes to those who are displaced from their homes. As the global refugee crisis deepens — Althib is one of more than 65.6 million people forcibly displaced worldwide, according to the UN Refugee Agency — many experts have called for a long-term approach to providing refugees with an education. That's especially important for refugees from countries like Syria, who may not be able to return home and resume their studies anytime soon. http://time.com/4825289/world-refugee-day-education-hadi-althib/
