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

Syrian Refugees in Jordan Struggle to Go to School
Description: (Amman, August 16, 2016) – Jordan should address policies that restrict Syrian refugee children’s access to school to meet ambitious goals of increased enrollment when the 2016-2017 school year begins in September, Human Rights Watch said in a report released today. More than one-third of school-aged Syrian children registered with the United Nations refugee agency in Jordan – over 80,000 out of 226,000 children – were not in formal education during the last school year. The 97-page report, “‘We’re Afraid For Their Future’: Barriers to Education for Syrian Refugee Children in Jordan,” describes Jordan’s generous efforts to enroll Syrian children in its public school system, which was struggling with capacity and quality issues even before refugees began to arrive from Syria. But Human Rights Watch also documented barriers to education, including asylum seeker registration requirements that many Syrians cannot meet; punishments for refugees working without permits that contribute to poverty, child labor, and school dropouts; and a bar on enrollment for children who have been out of school for three or more years. Jordan has eased some restrictions, but authorities should expand efforts to realize the fundamental right to education for all Syrian children, Human Rights Watch said

No School for Thousands of Syrian Refugee Children
Description: More than half of the nearly 500,000 school-age Syrian children registered in Lebanon are not enrolled in formal education. Although Lebanon, which is hosting 1.1 million registered Syrian refugees, has allowed Syrian children to enroll for free in public schools, limited resources and Lebanese policies on residency and work for Syrians are keeping children out of the classroom.

Lebanon: Refugee uses Facebook to help other refugees
Description: When her son was assaulted, Nour, a Syrian refugee living in Lebanon, did not know where to go for help – so she turned to Facebook. Since it was set up two years ago, the “I am a Syrian in Lebanon,” Facebook group has become a one-stop shop for information for refugees. It is the brainchild of Oum Nidal, 45, herself a Syrian who fled the bombing in Homs with her husband and four children in 2012. Most days she now puts in a 16-hour shift helping out others on her smartphone.
