Challenge

According to LCRP, almost 1.5 million disadvantaged children live in Lebanon, including around 1 million non-Lebanese children, including 540,000 Syrian refugee children registered with UNHCR, and 122,000 Palestinian refugees. Approximately 52% are between 6 to 14 years of age. As the economic situation of Lebanon worsened affecting mostly the low-income and middle-class families, these resorted to dropping their children from schools.

Solution

Ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promoting lifelong learning opportunities for all (UNDP SDG # 4) Outcome(s): - Sponsoring 30 students with 450.00 USD to cover for all education-related costs for one academic year. Output(s): - 30 students have been sponsored for one full academic year. - 30 students, at risk of dropping out of school, have registered for the academic year 2019-2020 - The financial wellbeing of 30 families at the beginning of this academic year.

Long-Term Impact

Many of these children are at risk of dropping out of school despite their academic excellence in their schools. Supporting this project will help those children to stay in school without having to work in fields and dangerous areas to support their parents financially.

This project has provided additional documentation in a PDF file (projdoc.pdf).
