Challenge

Due to the current economic and political turmoil that Lebanon is currently experiencing which is affecting the education sector, and the daily lives of people of all nationalities. Currently, more than 1.2 million children in Lebanon are out of school, while 500 schools are threatened to shut down this year.

Solution

The campaign targets 10,000 vulnerable students in Lebanon in all Lebanese governorates of different nationalities: Lebanese, Syrian refugees, Palestinian refugees, and migrants. URDA will be offering 4 services which include: student sponsorship, transportation fees, school supplies, as well as school bag and stationery.

Long-Term Impact

This project aims to maintain a normal proportion of students enrolled in schools & universities. Also, this will participate in lowering the rate of schools' & universities dropouts and high child labor in Lebanon. Moreover, it will help the Lebanese society in this high-risk collapsing situation.
