Quality Access to Education in Emergency for Out-of-School Palestinian Refugee Children from Syria

This project will help refugee children to go back to school, which helps establish a sense of normalcy and stability in their lives, and contributes to the their psychosocial well-being.

Helping refugee children get back to school quickly helps establish a sense of normalcy and stability in their lives, and contributes to the their psychosocial well-being. The ‘Quality Access to Education in Emergency for Out-of-School Palestinian Refugee Children from Syria’ project is designed to help Palestinian refugee children from Syria prepare to enter UNRWA schools in the Palestinian refugee camps.  Preparatory classes for the Accelerated Learning Programme (ALP) help children transition from the Syrian to the Lebanese curriculum. Open house events and clear information on enrolment stimulate children’s interest in returning to school and help motivate families to enrol their children.  In addition, children participating in the programme take part in structured creative activities designed to help them cope with their emotions and experiences.

The project is implemented in the Shatila, Ain El Hilweh, Rashadiyeh and El Buss Palestinian refugee camps by War Child partner organisation Solidarity (SASCD). The projected is funded by UN OCHA.
