    Insufficient funds are not the only problem. The experts warn against another issue – “The Lost Generation”. According to the UN statistics, there are around 4 million children out of school, with many of their schools having been destroyed and many of those still standing being used as dormitories for internal refugees. In other places it is the ongoing war that prevents children from attending school. Schools in neighbouring countries, however, are at full capacity. After the conflict has come to its end, there might be millions of young uneducated people, without the necessary skills and knowledge, not only to provide for their families, but also for themselves.

THE LEBANESE SITUATION

    Lebanon is a country where more than one million Syrian refugees reside. So the country has come to host the largest population of migrants/refugees per capita. Half of them being children living there in terrifying conditions; with their incomplete families in cellars, paying overpriced rents that can reach up to 500 USD a month for as little as two almost windowless small rooms.
    What makes the situation even more challenging is the fact that most Syrian citizens don’t have necessary work permits that are very hard to get due to complicated administration and high price. That is why they have to work illegally for small wages. This leads to children being in need of joining the workforce. 8-year-old boys and girls are trying to help their parents who are working in supermarkets, butchers, or even constructions, where they are being confronted with workplace bullying and reluctance to be paid.

ADRA

    Many NGOs like ADRA have started providing educations for those affected children in order to prevent the ‘Lost Generation’ from happening. ADRA Lebanon has founded an educational centre for 120 displaced children. The education is provided for free, including lunch, which is amazing as many children are forced to work after. The teaching is delivered by volunteers, mostly Syrians qualified for education who have come through the same traumatising experience like the children.
    This year it was also the government bringing great news when initiating afternoon teaching, canceling tuition and other various fees for textbooks and tools, and planning to extend teaching capacity by building more classrooms. This could help integrate all the children in need of education. This is where the good news ends. Building new classrooms won’t however mean the winning situation for Syrian children who have suffered more than many of us can imagine, just during their short lifetime. Due to the war, they have missed up to several years of school and need to get used to the new teaching system that is for example in Lebanon running in English and French. Moreover, the traumatising experience often prevent them from full integration into the education system.
    There is however a solution to this issue as well, which is aimed to be implemented by previously mentioned ADRA. By supporting activities aimed at helping children with homework, tuition and psycho-social support they will increase their chances to succeed at school and to finish their studies, and hence, hopefully to the better future for them.
    It is the activities of ADRA that you will be able to support, and you can do so for free! All you need to do is play. For more information, please check – How it works.
