by Insan Association
Vetted

Summary

Insan Association will provide Access to Education at Insan School, as well as Psycho-Social support for the most marginalized children in Lebanon. Children of refugees from Iraq and Syria, children of migrants, as well as vulnerable Lebanese children, have no access to schooling due to poverty and discrimination. Accordingly, Insan aims to help these children to fully live out their childhoods, and continue to play, learn, discover, and laugh, despite the hardships they face

Challenge

In 2014, Lebanon was host to the largest number of refugees in the world compared to its population, with 1.5 million registered refugees, of whom half are children below the age of 18. That same year, a number of administrative decisions and memos from Lebanon's Ministry of Education and General Security were issued that restricted the enrolment of non-Lebanese children in public and semi-public schools. These decisions left non-Lebanese children with limited access to their right to education.

Solution

Insan School will provide education for children between the ages of four and 16, with classes in Arabic, English, French, math, science, and the arts. Cultural activities will also be organized for the children. The project also aims to help the children acquire the necessary skills to surmount the obstacles to their integration in the Lebanese school system - and, consequently, into Lebanese society. Social support will be provided to children and their families in order to meet their needs.

Long-Term Impact

Through the Insan School Program and providing psycho-social support to children and their families, we aim to overcome the educational inequalities between children from different nationalities in Lebanon, and as a result improve their living conditions and reduce poverty in the long run. Spaces will be created for children to grow and develop in a secure, nurturing environment - away from violence, forced labor and exploitation.
