ANA AQRA ASSOCIATION

Project - The Children's Learning Centre 

1 September 2014 - 30 June 2019

The Middle East and North Africa region is currently enduring countless devastation and losses on all levels as since 2011, violent conflicts have been erupting in most countries of the region. International, regional and local organisations are striving to bring relief to all accessible places and advocate for the resolution of conflicts and the cessation of violence especially towards civilians. Yet, there is a lot still to be done in terms of humanitarian relief, attending to the emergencies inside the countries in conflict and towards the populations escaping terrible situations.


Al Madad Foundation, believing that education is crucial for life change and a positive future and in such situations even life-saving, joined efforts with Ana Aqra Association to ensure developing and supporting programmes that aimed to emancipate and empower the most vulnerable and excluded. This project worked to bring a sense of normalcy to children refugees, some of the most vulnerable and to disadvantaged children in Lebanon, and to provide them with a smooth transition back into school. 


The partnership between Ana Aqra and Al Madad started in 2012. The focus has been enhanced literacy in support of disadvantaged communities to ensure readiness to access formal education and to ensure continued schooling. The focus developed and from 2014 - 2019, Ana Aqra provided community based early childhood education programme, retention programme (remedial and homework support) and reintegration programme (basic literacy and numeracy) at the CLC with the support of Al Madad Foundation.

For those children in the region who could not reach the CLC, our two Classroom-on-a-Bus vehicles provided the reintegration program (basic literacy and numeracy) and the community based early childhood education programme.
