Behind the green-colored gate of the educational center, dozens of children play and run in the vast courtyard. They laugh, shout and talk as teachers look on. Then the bell rings, and the tiny children line up and start heading to their classrooms.
This is an educational center run by the Egyptian nonprofit Fard Foundation, which tries to help Egypt's Syrian refugees return to school. It is in 6th of October City, some 32 kilometers (20 miles) outside Cairo. This city houses thousands of Syrians, some of whom also own shops there. It is called Little Damascus due to the huge influx of Syrians.
