Fratelli Project, De La Salle and Marists Brothers – Beirut, Lebanon
De La Salle – Solidarietà Internazionale has been collaborating with the Marist Brothers in Lebanon to ensure that Iraqi refugees fearing religious persecution and Syrian refugees fleeing the war in Syria are given support to be able to continue their children’s education. As many of these families are undocumented refugees, they have no access to education for their families through the public education system and therefore they require support as well as assistance to transition to the public-school system later.
Beyond looking after the youngest children, the project offers courses in literacy, information technology and sewing to young adults, with particular attention given to the inclusion of mothers of students who participate in the project activities. In this way, the accepting environment paired with the respect for children’s rights that is embraced during the Fratelli Project, continues on at home and the children are ready to transition into the public-school system later on in life.Help us support this project
