Jusoor invests in training its teachers so that they can provide the best practices in emergency education for the students. In crisis situations, conditions such as interrupted education, loss, and trauma need to be addressed in order to meet the needs of children facing emotional and psychological distress.
Over the last three years, Jusoor staff have provided teacher training and assessment assistance on an ad-hoc basis to local nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) in Lebanon. The demand for this training, as well as for materials and program plans, by other organizations working in Lebanon is increasing. Through a recent partnership with the Varkey Foundation, Jusoor was able to reach more children in need through training teachers in Syria’s neighboring countries (Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey, Iraq, and Egypt) in child-focused non-formal education techniques used in an emergency education context.

We have prepared this online resource to share Jusoor’s experiences and best practice, in the hope that Jusoor’s educational model can be replicated more widely in Lebanon and the region, and be of service to a global network working with refugee children.
