Digitized Learning for Lebanon and Syrian Refugees

Commitment by

TidWiT

In 2015, TidWit and its partners committed to providing a fully digitized Lebanese curriculum for 50,000 Lebanese public school students and Syrian refugees in response to the massive educational challenges posed by the Syrian crisis. TidWit will offer accelerated and remedial material online for free through the public school system, schools for Syrian refugees, community centers, and self-study opportunities. As a result, over a one year period, students will re-enter the school system, obtain non-formal certifications and diplomas necessary for employment, as well as prepare for testing. The American Task Force for Lebanon will serve as Advisory Committee Chair to support the e-learning of Syrian refugee children in Lebanon to prevent a "lost generation” of children. While the project is initially focused on Lebanon, it has the potential for regional replication.
