Afaak Education Center Boosts Academic Output of Palestinian Refugees from Syria in Lebanon

Over 180 school drop-outs among the Palestinians of Syria have benefited from the education and development programs provided by Afaak Education Center in Wadi AlZineh, south of Lebanon.

Director of Afaak Center, Maher Abboud, who was displaced from Yarmouk Camp in Syria, said Afaak’s programs started to see the day between 2015 and 2016 in response to the striking rise in school drop-outs among children, particularly those displaced from Syria to Lebanon.

The center was launched in partnership with the Charity Commission for the Relief of the Palestinian People.

Abboud said educational courses have been held for boys, girls, and elderly people, including illiterate ones. Over 50 women and 70 minors reportedly graduated from the center after they successfully took part in literacy education programs.

The center provides educational, cultural, and sports activities to people from different ages. Psychological supports programs are also provided to elderly people and children. Leisure activities and competitions are held on a regular basis. School furniture is occasionally handed over to the needy people.

More than 105 persons enrolled at the center have also benefited from free transportation secured in cooperation with the Islamic Relief Worldwide Organization to facilitate their access in out of their destinations, in light of dire socio-economic conditions endured by the displaced families.

The director added that over 140 students who dropped out of school got enrolled again at their academic institutions.

Afaak Center aims at boosting the intellectual output and academic skills of the displaced Palestinian and Syrian refugees who fled war-torn Syria to Lebanon.

Some 400 displaced Palestinian families from Syria have been taking shelter in Wadi AlZineh, among 31,000 Palestinians from Syria seeking refuge in the Lebanese territories.
