Ana Aqra Association Ana Aqra Association is an independent non-profit organization that advances literacy and autonomous learning for underprivileged children in Lebanese public schools. Founded in 1994, Ana Aqra has since expanded its services to address the educational, cultural and psychosocial needs of communities within and surrounding the public educational system. Ana Aqra has also responded to the influx of refugees from Syria, with educational programs aligned with national and INEE international standards for Education in Emergency. Ana Aqra works under the auspices of Ministry of Education and Higher Education and in partnership with other various local and international organizations. Ana Aqra's programmes are implemented across Lebanon and aim to provide equal access, integration and retention of public school children ages 6 to 16, as well as provide teacher training towards long-term sustainability.
