Some 250,000 #Syrian children in Lebanon don't go to school at all. According to Izdihar Omar, head of the Jusoor School in West Bekaa, high quality #learning materials help keep kids in the classroom: "Most students here live in unstable conditions. Many are residents of nearby tented settlements, and are at risk of dropping out to work and support their families. It’s these new books and school supplies that allow for interactive activities. Given the poverty these students live in, they need these types of fun learning activities."

"For #refugee children, school is necessary. School can offer social and emotional support for the traumas these children have experienced. In the classroom, children learn skills that will help them contribute to society positively—whether in their host community or back home in #Syria, when they get the chance to return. When these kids are in the classroom alongside their Lebanese peers, learning the same basics and nurturing their growing minds, they have a better chance of integrating. The stigma of being a refugee, cut off from society and bound to tented settlements, can finally dissipate."
