Due to the economic crisis in Lebanon, which affected the education sector, at least 500 schools in Lebanon are threatened to shut down this year, and more than 1.2 million children have been out of school. Thus, URDA's Education Sector is launching its annual BTS Back to School Campaign through four main interventions including: student sponsorship, school bag and stationery, as well as school supplies, and transportation support.
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.
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.
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.
