“Education builds houses that have no backbone”
The education sector is one of the most important sectors that build an educated society and generation, and the primary pillars of this sector are teachers and students. Therefore, believing in the importance of knowledge and learning, Umutevi Charity has launched various initiatives to support high school students, students entering university, and teachers in northern Syria.
