What we do
War Child is active across all governates of Lebanon. We are currently in more than 40 locations - including the most vulnerable areas of the country.
All children deserve the same opportunities in life. That’s why our psychosocial support, education and protection projects see us work with Syrian and Palestinian refugee families as well as host communities. We also strive to boost the inclusion of children with disabilities.
We partner with local NGOs and grassroots organisations to co-create our projects and strengthen their capacity. Our goal is to reach as many people as possible through our programming – including parents and caregivers.

Strengthening Child Protection

School Bridging Program

This project supports children to enrol in the appropriate grade and to stay in school, ensures schools have the capacity and infrastructure to accommodate out-of-school children and will support the development of skills, confidence and motivation to enable learners to transition with high-quality instruction and community support and increased demand for further education.
Education for the long haul
Multiple locations across Lebanon
