Soaring levels of poverty and ongoing violence in the occupied Palestinian territories prevent many young people from accessing their right to an education. Children and young adults with disabilities are the worst affected, with less than half of children with disabilities enrolled in regular education.
In Palestinian refugee camps across Lebanon and Jordan, poorly funded schools and a lack of opportunities outside the camps are taking their toll on the motivation of refugee children. Combined with their economic hardship, a normal educational experience is almost impossible.
Successive generations of Palestinian children have learned that their classrooms and homes are not safe places, and they have come to learn that their school uniforms will not shield them from bullets, bombs or harassment.
We are continuing to advocate for and support Palestinians’ right to an education. Get in touch today find out how you can help.
