Enhancing Non Formal Education For Palestinian Youths In North Lebanon
The youth of the Nahr El-Bared and Beddawi refugee camps face immense challenges on numerous fronts. The job market is severe, with both high unemployment and low wages as the norm. This situation is further complicated by the high rate of dropouts among students, as well as the lack of resources in schools at all age levels. In addition, camp youths often lack proper recreational facilities – which would give them a chance to develop important social skills, as well as provide relief to the harsh reality of life in the camps.
Enhancing Non-Formal Education project (ENFE II) aims to improve the camp youth’s chances for a better future. By building on the successes of ENFE I, the program seeks to continue making Palestinian youth more competitive in the difficult marketplace. ENFE II focuses on building capacity for vocational training and remedial education providers, as well as using sports as a cross-cutting program strategy to enhance the effectiveness of those priorities.
