Storyline


Syrian refugee children in Lebanon have got the chance to receive education under the help of the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF) and the Lebanese educational ministry.

The continuous war in Syria has deprived a large number of children of their right to receive education.

Currently there are nearly 600,000 pre-school and school-age Syrian refugee children in the neighboring country of Lebanon.

In order to bring these children back to school, the UNICEF and the Lebanese Ministry of Education and Higher Education in early 2016 launched an accelerated learning program for children aged between 7 and 17 who have been out of school for more than two years. The children will be enrolled in public schools in the country.

At a public elementary school in Chiyah, in the western part of the Lebanese capital of Beirut, 400 Syrian children are taking language learning and other basic learning courses before they are qualified to register for formal public school education.

"I'm from Aleppo in Syria. I'm 12 years old. I went to school in Syria. But since my family moved here after the war started, I had been out of school for three years," said Syrian refugee child Ahmad Ibrahim al-Salam.

Another 11-year-old Syrian girl named Aicha Jassem said she moved to Lebanon two years ago and had been out of school because her family could not find a place to live.

"I have made friends here and got text books, notebooks and stationery. I've learned a lot and I believe I will make achievements in my study. I want to continue my education and be successful," said Jassem.

The UNICEF also raised international donations for school supplies for the refugee children, including text books and stationery.

China in 2017 donated one million U.S. dollars of financial assistance to the UNICEF. All the supplies that came out of the Chinese donation have been delivered to the children.

According to the statistics of UNICEF, nearly 220,000 Syrian children and teenagers have been included in the accelerated learning program through local communities and public schools. Around 60,000 children have been enrolled for formal public school education.

However, there are still 40 percent of the registered Syrian refugee children and teenagers remaining out of school.
