Hands Up Foundation is now Action Syria


Education is essential for a brighter future but in Lebanon, almost one-third of school-aged refugees have never attended school.

Around 1.5 million Syrian refugees are living in Lebanon, having been forced to flee their homes. More than half of those who are school-aged are out of school.

Lebanon is facing the worst economic crisis it has seen in decades, leaving 90% of Syrian refugees requiring humanitarian assistance for their survival. The economic crisis has also strained the education system beyond its limits.

Public schools are overcrowded, and many refugees can’t send their children to school as they don’t have the necessary paperwork to be allowed to attend, or money for transportation. That’s if they even manage to secure a space.

With our funding, 200 Syrian children from refugee camps in Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley receive education and 13 teachers have a job. Without it, these children would not be able to go to school.
