After three years of great progress with tented education in Bekaa Valley, nearly 300 Syrian refugee children have taken another huge step forward by moving to a brand new school.
Together with partners Triumphant Mercy (TM), after supporting the creation of four colourful tent schools in Bekaa Valley settlements over the last few years, all the students have now transitioned to a new central building in Zahle.
Joram, another teacher with the programme says “I like the new building so much. There are windows in every classroom, but less noise (before trucks passed through camp selling vegetables and fish, loudly shouting all the time)! There are bathrooms inside and the students can’t go home if they are upset or bored, so they must stay in class until the end! The reality of learning how to teach and give from the heart, and seeing the outcome in the children is a beautiful thing”.
