Education

We seek to provide access to formal and non-formal education to allow vulnerable populations to be more autonomous.

Lebanon

The economic collapse has increased the level of poverty in the country. More than half of the Lebanese population now lives below the poverty line, compared to 70% and 90% among Palestinian and Syrian refugees respectively. According to Save the Children, more than 1.2 million children have been unschooled since the beginning of the pandemic in February 2020. The Lebanese children still in school have had a “maximum of 11 weeks of teaching” over a year, due to Covid-19 restrictions.

Ana Aqra Association

Support given to a school to maintain access to quality education by provisioning technical resources (tablets, internet, educational training) and other basic commodities (meals, heating, cleaning products) allowing 51 professors to keep teaching and 729 children (7-12 years old) to continue and finish their secondary education.

Tanzania

According to UNESCO, at 32%, Tanzania has one of the lowest secondary school enrolment rates in Africa and faces challenges in the transition from primary to secondary school. This is particularly the case for girls. While progress has been made in ending child marriage and in increasing access to education for girls and boys, the COVID-19 crisis has increased the challenges girls have to face.

CAMFED Tanzania

Support given to 2 local study funding schemes, allowing 2,550 vulnerable girls and boys from 5 rural districts to access and complete their education. In addition, 600 young women are given support to develop their micro-enterprises and increase their income. This support also provides 1,250 underprivileged children with access to education in Tanzania.
