School in a Bus for Syrian refugees

Education is a fundamental right for anybody. It is a proven route out of poverty. Not only does it benefit individuals economically it also contributes positively to society. More importantly it gives a child a ray of hope for a better future.
 
The School in a Bus project looks to work within the difficult environment of the refugee camps and revive education for many Syrian refugee children.
 
It has been reported that half of the Syrian refugee children aged 3 – 18 are out-of-school and denied a basic right because of the country’s upheaval. Human Rights Watch have stated that 210, 000 school-age refugee children are in donor supported schools, illustrating how donor support is vital to the education of a Syrian refugee child in a time where other systems have failed them.
 

The project aims to give 300 Syrian children aged 6 – 14 basic literacy and numeracy skills in conjunction with Lebanese educational standards and curriculum. The aim is to enable children to continue into the Lebanese education system.

A high percentage of children out-of-school are affected by poor mental health.

The unique benefits to the School in a Bus project as opposed to a conventional educational structure is:

  • Children in remote areas such as Arsal, Beqaa will now have access to schooling
  • Teaching techniques that are child centric, making them diverse and engaging.
The quality of the project ensures that children are taught in a safe and effective environment. Parents and guardians are involved through proper communication and case workers.
