ADRA initiated an educational program “Basic Education Through Sustainable Teaching” that gathers children from different backgrounds and cultures to give them access to retention classes and support. The success of our educational system is crowned by the success of the students in their academic performance with the implementation of the right of children to have free and compulsory education in Lebanon.
The registration process included a link that can be sent to those who message ADRA through the outreach phone number to fill in the necessary information. The outreach officers keep their mobile phones available to assist direct and in-direct beneficiaries at any time. Four-hundred and thirty students were selected to join the program based on factors of vulnerability, special needs, and status in Baalbek and Mount Lebanon, whereas a high number of students are still on the waiting list.

Snacks for Children
ADRA supplies students with learning materials including stationery (pencils, notebooks, and erasers), whereas worksheets are being distributed weekly. Students can take back old stationery with them to school and at home. This will ensure that the families who cannot afford to purchase these items will now be provided for their children.
