Education in Lebanon

We promote accessible, safe and quality education opportunities which support the healthy development of children, adolescents, and youth, and allow them to thrive.

Integrity Activity Life Skills
Children take part in an integrity activity at the life skills training center, supported by Plan International.

We support children and young people to learn the skills they will need to improve their lives as they grow up. In particular we target:

  • Vulnerable children (aged 0-17 years) and young people aged 18-24 years,
  • Parents and caregivers of vulnerable children and young people,
  • Key community stakeholders such as youth groups, community leaders, religious leaders, teachers,  
  • Decision-makers, influencers, partner organisations and other public and private service providers and influencers.

Education Icebreaker activity
Girls play a game designed to help children get to know each other better at the life skills training center, supported by Plan International.


Our work on education in Lebanon includes a number of major activities such as psychosocial support, life skills, basic literacy and numeracy. Our work includes:

  • Promoting safe and inclusive formal and non-formal education for at-risk children aged 6-17,
  • Promoting safe and inclusive technical and vocational training for at-risk adolescents and young people (18-25 years),
  • Supporting the successful transition of children and young people to formal education or employment,
  • Advocating for inclusive and quality education for all, including refugee children.
