The civil war that started in neighbouring Syria over 10 years ago has meant that now, Lebanon is host to 1.5 million refugees and has the highest number of refugees per capita in the world. 
Since 2016, our work in Lebanon has continued to evolve and adapt to the ongoing refugee crisis and the challenging social, political and economic situation. Currently, there are 319,000 refugee children in Lebanon who cannot access quality education and who are unlikely to enter the formal education system. Now with the added impact of COVID, it is predicted that across the country, children will complete an average of 11 weeks of schooling for the academic year. 

Our Mobile Classrooms in Beqaa Valley

Our Mobile Education Bus and Mini-Tented School are unique programmes in Lebanon, where we work with Syrian & Palestinian refugee children, to provide regular education and support for children living in settlements and waiting to enter formal education. Both of these sites include our EdTech Tablet programme and additional Psychosocial Support activities to develop literacy, numeracy and resilience for children.

Why Flexible learning settings in Lebanon?

To directly target the lack of access to education for Syrian & Palestinian refugees and vulnerable Lebanese communities, our Mobile Education Bus and Mini-Tented School are flexible learning environments designed to reach children living in informal settlements in the Bekaa Valley region. Both settings provide tablet technology for children to support literacy and numeracy to improve their chances to access formal education.
