education is everything
1.2 million children in Lebanon have been out of school.
Over the past COVID-19 year, Lebanese children have received an estimated maximum of 11 weeks of education and 55% of Lebanese families are now living in poverty. The learning crisis was further compounded by a currency collapse, and the Beirut port explosion and COVID-19 lockdown measures.
Did you Know?
The longer children in Lebanon are out of school, the higher the possibility that they will experience violence and exploitation, including child labor and child marriage.
