Overview

Helping refugee children get access to education

What they do

Lebanon is hosting the largest number of Syrian refugees per capita in the world, with 25% of its population now consisting of refugees. Of those refugees, nearly half are children who are missing school. Without a consistent education, these children are at risk of being unable to participate in their new country. Losing an entire generation of young thinkers will only exacerbate the ongoing crisis.

The Clooney Foundation for Justice is scoping out partners to bring quality education to out-of-school refugees in Lebanon.

How we're helping

The Google.org grant will support the Clooney Foundation for Justice’s efforts to increase access to education to refugees in Lebanon. Googler volunteers, working both on the ground and remotely, will provide technical expertise.
