Current Projects
The project below was identified by our overseas partners and colleagues as a priority. Thanks to generous contributions from our supporters in the community, we are now working to meet their needs!

 

2017/18 - Kindergarten & Health Education for Syrian Refugees, Year IV

Project Obectives:

To improve the conditions of refugee children from Syria living in Lebanon in terms of education and psycho-sociological welfare through a special kindergarten education program and additional health/hygiene education sessions.

Activities:

  1. Kindergarten program with a special focus on psycho-social activities for 100 children, from 4 to 6 years of age. The program will run for 9 months, from September 2017 to May 2018.
  2. 9 puppet shows (one per month) on the themes of health, social inclusion of children with disabilities and hygiene promotion. The plays will be put on for 600 children, under 18 years of age.

Purposes, Goals and Expected Results:

The Need for this Project:

Syrian refugees are finding it difficult to send their children to schools in Lebanon for various reasons:

  • The Lebanese government announced the possibility of accepting children at public schools but spaces are limited and therefore Syrian parents can’t find places for their children at registration time. Less than 10% of the families were able to register their children at the Lebanese official schools last year.
  • The curriculum in Syria is quite different from the Lebanese curriculum and therefore the Syrian children are not able to seamlessly attend Lebanese schools, especially at the elementary level.
  • Private schools in Lebanon are very expensive and are beyond the capacities of the refugee’s families to pay the fees.
  • To-date, no kindergartens have been registering children from Syria, except for one new kindergarten established in the North and Bekaa for the benefit of the refugees.

As a result, most of the families have identified the issue of education for their children as a priority to be targeted, since they are kept at home for the whole day and they are getting disengaged from the education atmosphere.
