Local public schools in Lebanon can accommodate only half of the 400,000 school-age Syrian refugee children in the country according to the UN Refugee Agency, (UNHCR).

More than four million people have fled Syria as a result of the four-year long civil war that has engulfed the country.

Many parents have arrived in Lebanon and are hoping that their children can receive a proper education.
