56-year-old ‘Syriana’ actor George Clooney and wife Amal have teamed up with UNICEF to educate Syrian refugees!
UNICEF just announced a $2.25 million partnership with The Clooney Foundation For Justice to fund the opening of seven schools in Lebanon so that 3,000 refugee schoolkids can get educated.
George and Amal say in a joint statement: “Thousands of young Syrian refugees are at risk — the risk of never being a productive part of society. Formal education can change that. That’s our goal with this initiative. We don’t want to lose an entire generation because they had the bad luck of being born in the wrong place at the wrong time.” How nice! ??
