Minutes away from the Lebanese coast in an unfinished building once destined to become a university is a community that serves a small village of Syrian refugees.
This camp contains 1500 people living in a 4-floor building, with one room for each family and a shared bathroom on each floor.
On the ground floor is where you will find our Education and Empowerment center in Saida. The needs of this center are beyond just that of education and providing opportunities for the future.
As the center is attached to an entire network of Syrian refugee families, the school plays a major role in this community.
Education and Empowerment Center 2 in the Ouzai Shelter in Saida is our biggest center in Lebanon.
Most of its students are registered in the public schools. Therefore, our non-formal education program in the center and supports students in their school work by utilizing the Lebanese curriculum in all classes, including Arabic, English language, mathematics and homework support, as well as weekly science classes, PSS activities, and life skills classes.
