Safeguarding Lebanon's Future in Education

As our beloved country grapples with the present complicated set of challenges and as the Lebanese crisis pushes young people away from school and robs them of their right to education, Teach For Lebanon’s role is crucial to reverse those existing trends. According to UNICEF, 30% of young people dropped out of secondary school in 2021. This alarming rate is further pushing TFL to provide its student beneficiaries with quality education as well as psychological support and reintegration through recreational activities. 

The crisis that hit the education sector resulted in rolling strikes since the beginning of 2022 due to several reasons including the lack of wage rises, transport allowance, and fuel to heat the classrooms during the cold weather. Wages in Lebanon's public sector have not been changed to reflect the pound's more than 90% depreciation and the country's skyrocketing inflation rate. 

On the bright side, we were successful in preparing the organization for a period of growth and expansion by fostering a learning and personal development culture inside TFL and its activities. Despite the ongoing strikes, our Fellows were not held back and continued to push forward and fulfill their mission through hybrid teaching (in-person and online) in a tough climate. We must guarantee that Lebanese children have access to quality education because they are the key to safeguarding Lebanon's future.
