What happens to a refugee child who loves to learn? When Benjamin fled Syria with his family, he not only left his home but he left his school, as well. He had no more math problems to work at night and no more essays to write. He was falling behind. But then, he joined an English club, where he and other children could at least practice a foreign language together. He played educational games and made crafts. He even had homework again. Now, his family has resettled in Sweden, and he’s at the top of his class. Thank you for funding this club for Benjamin.
