Preface

The Syria crisis has led to an unprecedented number of refugees in the Middle East. Since the spring of 2011, more than one million refugees have arrived in Lebanon to seek refuge from the civil war that rages in their home country. The arrival of such high numbers of refugees in a country of approximately 4 million people has a significant socio-economic impact. Public services are under pressure and struggling to meet the needs of local residents as well as those arriving as a result of the crisis. Education, as a service, has not been spared.

The majority of refugees crossing the border into Lebanon are children and providing them with an education is a top priority. However, despite having generously open access to its schools for a large number of refugee children, the Lebanese education system (LES) and its public schools lack both the capacity and the resources to accommodate the large increase in the number of school-aged children. This, along with a complex interrelated set of other barriers, has resulted in a large out of school population among Syrian children and youth.  

In light of these challenges and difficulties, LIFE is cooperating with effective partners, institutions and organizations in order to provide the education needed for the Syrian refugees.  

Introduction

Because every child should have the opportunity to receive a quality education and because without such a right, the values of liberty, justice and equality will have no meaning, the Education Program in Lebanon (EPL)  was created with our MAP department.

EPL's mission is to work on evaluating the status quo, cooperate and supervise on educational process and implement high quality educational projects.

Our Mission

Since education is the cornerstone to build productive and interactive societies and connoisseur generations, our plan is to provide learning opportunities to the Syrian refugees under 18 and to help others to get enrolled in universities in Lebanon or abroad through scholarships programs.

 

Our plan

  1. Encourage continuous educational supervision in order to promote the achievement of both teachers and students
  2. Monitor student development
  3. Train teachers and enhance their performance and capacity alongside of having a continuous assessment of the staff
  4. Pay attention to children on an educational, psychological and social level
  5. To create a database with detailed information on the entire existing initiatives, through field trips carried out by our MAP department
