Student Ali Khaled Stouf has to walk down several steps into a hole in the ground to get inside his school – a cave. There for four hours each morning, he studies subjects like Arabic, English, math and religion, sitting on a rug with dozens of children in the underground space in Tramla, an opposition-held village in Syria's northwestern Idlib province. More than five years of war, which began as a peaceful protest against President Bashar Assad and has since drawn in foreign military involvement and allowed for the growth of Daesh (ISIS), has displaced millions of Syrian children and limited their access to education.With schools themselves at times attacked, teachers make do with the basics to provide education. In one less damaged area, walls have been repainted and the school now has some 250 pupils.
