Why Education?

The true wealth of a nation lies not in its gold or silver but in its learning,
wisdom, and in the uprightness of its sons
- Khalil Gibran -

Over 1.2 million school-age children have had their education disrupted in 2020 alone, with 400,000 children being left out of school as a result of poverty and other factors.

The multidimensional poverty rate in Lebanon doubled from 42 per cent in 2019 to 82 per cent of the total population in 2021, with nearly 4 million people living in multidimensional poverty. They represent about 1 million households, including 77 per cent, or approximately 745,000, of Lebanese-national households (ESCWA).

The economic crisis is forcing families to adapt their livelihood-related coping strategies. This includes: for 50 per cent among them reducing household expenditure on education (WFP 2021), for 15 per cent among them un-enrolling children from the schools (UNICEF) and for 9 per cent among them sending children to work (UNICEF).

Why Education? because Lebanon cannot afford to lose a generation.

Today more than ever, it needs an educated youth to tackle the problems the country is facing and build a better future for the next generations.

Education changes everything

How do we tackle the
education crisis in Lebanon?

Advance education
Through our tuition aid programme, we subsidise school fees for children from lower-income families throughout Lebanon.
Bolster schools
Through our school sponsorship programme, we allocate aid to schools throughout Lebanon and help them raise needed development funding.
Combat poverty
Families have traditionally been the safety net of Lebanese society . With over 70% of the Lebanese population now living under the poverty line, this support system is buckling.
Develop knowledge
Our mission is also to create knowledge through research and to disseminate the outcome of such research, in the pursuit of our purpose, for the benefit of the wider public.
