In collaboration with the European Union and Germany, UNICEF will provide innovative support for the country’s Ministry of Education through the Transition Resilience Fund, a modality for data collection and exchange from school to regional and central levels.
The strategy will ensure accountability and transparency regarding investments and the results achieved in education for all children, according to UNICEF.
The Fund estimates that more than 1,200 public schools and 12,000 teachers in Lebanon will benefit from this program, which aims to improve children’s learning in a safe and protective environment.
According to UNICEF Representative in Beirut Edouard Beigbeder, schools are currently struggling to provide inclusive and quality learning opportunities to an increasing number of vulnerable children, many of whom are not attending school as a result of the nation’s crisis.
Last week, UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator in Lebanon Najat Rochdi, after addressing the Extension and Review of the Emergency Response Plan, revealed that more than 65,000 boys and 70,000 girls struggle to access classrooms, while 43 percent of migrants are not enrolled in schools.
