8 years into the Syrian crisis, only 16.6% children residing in Lebanon have access to education, albeit an informal one, inside Beqa’a’s camps. The most common challenges preventing refugee children from receiving a quality education include mobility due to the high cost of transportation in order to reach isolated areas where schools are located. On top of that, they're faced with limited capacity in public schools, language barriers, and curriculum complexity. 

To date, almost 4-million refugees do not have access to education and the pandemic has complicated matters even more.

So, we have decided to establish a School in a Bus for children together with our international partners.

Today, our School in A Bus travels around the camp to school 104 children aged 6-14 years old. We want to ensure that every child gets the opportunity to quality education in order to grow up independent. The mobile classroom is the first step in ensuring they are equipped with Basic Literacy and Numeracy (BLN) skills to help enable them to progress into the Lebanese education system. 1 year is all that is needed to compensate for the years they have spent without any form of education so that they’re prepared for the Accelerated Learning Programme (ALP) available in the region.
