1. Background:

CARE’s Education Program supports Out of School and at risk children to access formal education. CARE’s Psychosocial Support Program helps people cope increase their emotional and social well-being through individual, group, and peer to peer support. PSS extends to children Out of School or at risk of being Out of School, and their parents/caregivers.

The Syria crisis, protracted displacement, and remote schooling during the COVID-19 pandemic have limited children’s ability to develop Social and Emotional Learning competencies which are essential for academic success.

3. Scope of work:
