More than half of refugees leaving Syria are under 18 years of age and this surge in young people is overwhelming Lebanon’s academic institutions; schools are struggling and simply cannot accommodate them.
A growing number of school-age Syrian refugee children are now out of school in Lebanon. A recent report by Save the Children estimates that the figure stands at nearly 80% which overshadows the number of Lebanese children currently in public schools.
It is crucial to provide these children with education opportunities as the prospect of a better future diminishes the longer they remain out of school. Together, we can make sure they get access to the education, and the future, they deserve.
For a small donation of £3, which is about the same price as an ice cream this summer, you could buy a book that will help fill a growing library and allow the children we work with to expand their vocabulary and continue their love of learning.
Help us give these children the opportunity to go wherever their imaginations and ambitions take them!
Thank You Thursday
We’d like to extend a huge thank you to Ana Aqra Association for helping us to launch two School-in-a-bus projects. They hosted an official ribbon cutting ceremony last week which took place at our very own Children’s Learning Centre in the heart of the historical town of Baalbeck.
