UK aid money is working to keep Syrian children in education, to prevent them becoming a "lost generation" the Department for International Development (DFID) said.
Currently more than a million children in Syria are refugees in neighbouring countries - the equivalent of more than 1 in 5 primary school children in England.
As the government announced that it will match pound for pound all public donations to Syria, DFID went to the Zataari refugee camp in Jordan to see how aid donations were being spent.
