Strengthening Education for Vulnerable Syrian and Lebanese Children in Northern Lebanon

The ‘Strengthening Education for Vulnerable Syrian and Lebanese Children in Northern Lebanon’ project provides refugee and vulnerable children with a chance to catch-up with or restart their education.

By giving children a daily routine and providing a sense of stability and normalcy, education plays an important role in children’s psychosocial well-being and development. The ‘Strengthening Education for Vulnerable Syrian and Lebanese Children in Northern Lebanon’ project provides refugee and vulnerable children with a chance to catch-up with or restart their education. In-school children who struggle with the Lebanese curriculum because of foreign language requirements can attend remedial classes. At the same time, an Accelerated Learning Programme supports out-of-school children to re-enter mainstream education. Children also get the chance to participate in structured recreational and extra-curricular activities where they can interact with their peers, express themselves and have fun.

Workshops on child protection issues and how to deal with children affected by armed conflict are also held for parents and guardians. Staff working at participating schools and social centres also receives training in child protection and facilitating structured recreational activities. Schools are also supported to ensure children have access to clean water supplies, sanitation facilities and play equipment.

This project is implemented in local schools and social centres in Akkar, Bedawi and Tripoli in northern Lebanon.
