Summary

The double threat of the economic crisis and financial meltdown in Lebanon is hard-hitting the education sector. In Akkar - the city that suffers from severe marginalization at all levels, the parents are struggling to secure their daily needs, and education for them has become quite expensive. Consequently, this ongoing crisis is forcing them to withdraw their children from school due to the inability to pay all costs related to education. Help us lower the rate of school dropouts in Akkar.

Challenge

"Between 750,000 and 1 million children will be out of school this year" stated Ettie Higgins, UNICEF representative in Lebanon. Over the two-year crisis, the exchange rate for the US dollar has increased 15-fold and the value of the salaries has dropped by more than 90 percent. This year, the parents cannot cover the costs of education, secure transportation fees that have tripled, buy school supplies, and even secure daily expenses, which is forcing them to withdraw their children from school.

Solution

Our step is to reduce school dropouts for thousands of Lebanese and Syrian refugee students in Akkar by securing all the necessary supplies to continue their education without inconvenience, including school fees, school supplies, books, and transportation fees from home to school and vice versa.

Long-Term Impact

This project will reduce the number of school dropouts and support students in Akkar to continue learning and advancing to the next level. In the long run, this will decrease the number of child labour and protect the overall education sector in Akkar, Lebanon, from crumbling, saving an entire generation.
