Refugee
Education
Program

Lebanon is home to approximately 1.5 million Syrian refugees. Almost half of the refugees in Lebanon are children. Many children have been out of school for years or have never had a formal education. Education offers a bridge to a brighter future for millions of Syrian refugee children who have been affected by the conflict.

Syria's Future Leaders

Since June 2013, Jusoor’s Refugee Education Program in Lebanon has helped thousands of displaced Syrian children continue their education outside of Syria. The program seeks to ensure Syrian refugee children in Lebanon have a holistic, well-rounded primary school education and a strong psychosocial support system. Our education programs have been developed as responses to distinct challenges that children face due to the impact of the conflict in Syria.

Jusoor’s Refugee Education Program is designed to prepare students to transition into Lebanese formal schooling as smoothly as possible and catch up on gaps in education that many of Jusoor’s students have experienced. It provides children with the opportunities that they need to succeed and the skills and knowledge to rebuild future generations.

Our
Education Centers

Our centers are strategically located in different areas of Lebanon where access to education is limited to displaced Syrian children. Some of the schools also assist host community children who would otherwise may not have access to education.
