The project “Promoting the Right to Education for All- Investing in a Community of Educated, Autonomous Citizens in South Lebanon” aims at broadening the prospects for vulnerable populations in three communities in South Lebanon through improved access to education (Improving the learning performances, enhancing the learning environment, engaging the local community in the promotion of education). 

The project will benefit 800 children, youth, and caregivers from the most vulnerable populations in South Lebanon.

The 600 children, 400 children attend school and 200 do not attend school (They are taught Basic Literacy and Numeracy (BLN) to give them the basic tools to continue their education). 

The youth will participate in project activities, especially Youth Basic Literacy Numeracy (YBLN), transferable skills training, psychosocial support, and community committees and initiatives as needed.
