Lebanon: Syrian Refugee School

Project #71878
Church Support Education Lebanon Middle East

Since 2011, the country of Syria has been in a politically armed conflict. This conflict has caused one-fourth of the population to flee Syria and move to Lebanon for safety. About 36 miles from Beruit, is the refugee camps of Anjar, Lebanon. For the refugees living in these camps, every day is a reminder of their home that was lost and the uncertainty of their futures. That uncertainty is causing many refugees to seek God. Now is the time to reach these people with the gospel.

Our Avant team has started a school for Syrian refugee children near the refugee camps. More than 230 Syrian children, ages 5 to 12 years old, have been given the opportunity to learn Math, Science, Arabic, English and most importantly, the gospel of Jesus Christ. We have seen growth physically, academically, and spiritually in these students. They know the gospel stories in and out, and they are eager to share what they know with their parents and kinsmen. Not only is the school providing education for these children, but it also provides opportunities to build relationship between believing teachers and Muslim families.

Avant is seeking to expand the school to serve 100-200 more children in the area. This project will provide the funding to expand and sustain the school for one year.
