The Lebanese economy has been in crisis for several years, and the effects of this crisis are being felt throughout the country. One area that has been particularly affected is education, and the Schools for Syria Project in Tyre, Lebanon is no exception.
In addition to the challenges posed by the economic crisis, all state schools in Lebanon have been closed for weeks, leaving tens of thousands of children without access to education. This has only increased the need for alternative education options, such as the Schools for Syria Project in Tyre.
One of the biggest challenges the school has faced as a result of the economic crisis is a significant increase in transport costs. With the devaluation of the Lebanese pound and the rise of inflation, the cost of transportation has skyrocketed, making it more difficult for the school to transport students to and from classes each day.
This increase in transport costs is having a real impact on the school and its ability to provide education to Syrian refugee children in Tyre. Without reliable transportation, students are at risk of missing classes and falling behind in their studies, which can have long-term effects on their education and future prospects.
The economic crisis has also made it virtually impossible to do banking in Lebanon, which is having a significant impact on the school’s ability to receive and manage donations. With limited access to banking services and the increasing difficulty of exchanging currencies, it has become more challenging for the school to receive support from international donors and supporters.
Despite these challenges, Father William and the team at the Schools for Syria Project remain committed to providing education to Syrian refugee children in Tyre. They are working hard to find creative solutions to the challenges posed by the economic crisis, and they are determined to continue providing education and hope to children in need.
