Lebanon is on the verge of collapse. 80% of the population is living in poverty, while 90% of the 1.5 million Syrian refugees in Lebanon are struggling to meet their basic needs.

Sadly, it is the children who suffer most as families cope with rising poverty. Shockingly, already 15% of children have had to drop out of school, and one in ten children as young as six have been forced to work simply to make ends meet. With worsening conditions, children are increasingly vulnerable to violence, exploitation and abuse.

ADRA is currently running a program that provides remedial education and support to students from grades 1 through 9. The program also offers inclusion support for children facing marginalisation and those with disabilities.

Regular meetings are also held with parents and caregivers to discuss important topics such as child labor, early marriage, and gender-based violence.

The aim of this program is to promote a positive attitude towards education among students and their families.


Amina’s Story

For Amina* and her family, life has been one disaster after another.

Amina is a nine-year-old Syrian refugee who fled to Lebanon with her family after a missile strike killed one of her cousins.

Amina is in grade 1 but is three years behind her peers due to her learning difficulties. She suffers from attention deficit, a speech disorder, and diminished linguistic abilities.

Her mother was concerned that Amina would fall behind even further, but thanks to ADRA’s education program, Amina is receiving the help she needs to improve her skills and overcome her difficulties.
