The organization has become known as a leading global actor in educational and entrepreneurial programs for Syrian children and youth. The organization is known for its innovative approach to development challenges, high-velocity execution, and the strength of its global strategic partnerships and active volunteer base.
Jusoor’s Refugee Education Program seeks to ensure Syrian refugees in Lebanon have a holistic, well-rounded education, introducing contextual and relevant curricula and teaching methods to deliver informal education, and providing strong psycho-social support within the framework of community engagement and rehabilitation. The program is designed to prepare students to transition into formal education as smoothly as possible and catch up on gaps in education that many of Jusoor’s students have experienced.
