How can education support peace in Lebanon?
Description: International Alert held a conference in Beirut to discuss the power of education to improve peaceful relations in Lebanon, which is facing growing pressures and tensions because of the Syrian refugee crisis. Watch panellists Rania Zakhia, Education Specialist at UNICEF Lebanon, and our lead Researcher Lana Khattab share some insights from our upcoming report on the links between education and social stability. We also hear from our Middle East and North Africa Programmes Manager Rebecca Crozier. One of the key findings is that non-formal education programmes, particularly community-based initiatives with longer-term funding, are vital to improving relations among and between children and their families.

From the Street to the Classroom - Getting Syrian Kids Back Learning
Description: Children working on the street is one of the most visible signs of the Syrian refugee crisis in Lebanon. Many of the 1.5 million Syrian refugees living in Lebanon struggle to afford food and rent, and some feel they have no choice but to send their children out to work. Thirteen-year-old Bilal* has been working on the streets of Tripoli for the past two years. Originally from Aleppo, he would work 12 hours a day to bring in cash to support his family. Bilal is one of around 1,500 children who work on the streets of Lebanon. Most sell CDs, gum, tissues or beg. An International Rescue Committee survey showed that nine out of every 10 children who working on the streets of Tripoli fled Aleppo, like Bilal. The International Rescue Committee helps people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster to survive, recover and gain control of their future.

Lebanon: solidarity beyond borders through schools
Description: This school in Lebanon's Wadi Khaled, one kilometer away from Syria, is an example of solidarity beyond borders, as it brings together vulnerable Lebanese children and refugees. They might be from two different countries, but kids in this school have a common dream: a better future for them and their families. With a local NGO, and the participation of the community, we helped renovate the infrastructure of the school, so that children can study in a better environment and, hopefully, very soon, fulfill their dreams
