Between the dollarization of tuition fees in schools, the strikes of teachers, and the absence of plans and solutions by the Ministry of Education, we are on the verge of a major school dropout that Lebanon has not witnessed before. A school fee average is around 500usd, but the average salary in Lebanon is equivalent to 50usd. Therefore most of the families will not be able to send their children to school. If we join toghether we can support the future of young lebanese a student at a time!
The problem of education in Lebanon is synonymous with the increasingly difficult daily life in the country, and it is linked to the energy sector, in terms of securing electricity and diesel, to the high price of fuel cans. A problem that is exacerbated in light of the financial collapse that hit the country. As long as the prices of all commodities in Lebanon are linked to the price of the dollar, but with people unable to secure fresh dollars, the fate of many students is doomed.
Through the funds collected and institutional funds, in 2021 Pro Terra Sancta was able to support tuition for around 600 students. The tuitions where still fully rated in Lebanese pounds, and the budget used was around 50 K usd. Now that the tuitions will need to be paid in fresh dollars our support is even more needed! The project aims to support at least 600 students, but the budget needed has doubled to 100 K usd, half of which we hope to collect thrugh this crowdfunding initiative.
The project aims to secure education for at least 600 students and will help families meet their daily life expenses in a country that is in deep economic crisis.
