In Syria, the QRCS supports the education of university students who are unable to pay their fees, as it is also doing at The University of Bashakehir in Turkey. 
The QRCS also focuses its efforts on school dropouts, whether for security reason or other reasons related to extreme poverty, by providing them with an appropriate and stimulating environment, and helping education staff to reintegrate them to complete their education.
In Nepal, the QRCS has built three primary schools in the Kaval Westu, Gorkha District, and has provided several humanitarian assistance to some schools by providing transportation for students. 
The QRCS has strengthened its financial support for Nepal’s education sector by helping special needs people, as they are an important part of the society and have the right to participate in their country’s development.
The QRCS and EAA combine common objectives to achieve equal educational opportunities for all people, particularly in remote and afflicted areas across the world. 
The QRCS seeks to strengthen its relationship with EAA and enhance their partnership opportunities in supporting education, and the right of marginalised and poor people to study, the statement added.
