Lebanon


Engage

As Syrian refugees hope to rebuild their lives and return to their homes, an English education will help them develop the skills they need to integrate into an educational system wherever they end up.

Details

Although the Syrian Civil War began over 8 years ago, the need to help the Syrian refugees remains great. Our organization works with a fellowship that is currently helping educate over 520 Syrian children on the Lebanon/Syria border.

During the day, you and your team will partner with the fellowship to teach English for several hours in either a classroom or in the refugee camps. In the evenings, there is an opportunity to teach English to adults from the community. Since English levels are often low, you will likely have a translator in your classroom.
