Supporting the students of the Al-Kafaàt Foundation

Education of marginalised children and their integration into society

2021 till Today
Beyrouth, Lebanon

Context

Since 2021, Lebanon is facing a catastrophic financial crisis, which is mostly the result of 30 years of political corruption. The country is sinking into total uncertainty.
With an unemployment rate exceeding 40% (FAO, 2021), a poverty rate approaching 60% (UNESCWA, 2021) and the Lebanese Pound losing its value (devalued to 90%, June 2021), the 1,800 students of the Al-Kafaàt Foundation schools from vulnerable financial situations are forced to abandon their education.

Beneficiaries

Al Kafaàt trains more than 1,750 children and young adults every year.
They are mainly from families living below the poverty line.

Results

For the year 2021-2022, the Technical Institute (sectors of printing, electronics, sales and commercial relations, accounting, mechanics, advertising, interior decoration, and hotel management) has a 100% success rate in all its courses, in the Professional Certificate and Technical Baccalaureate !
