SB Overseas is a non-profit organisation that is dedicated to providing essential humanitarian aid, as well as empowerment programmes and educational and psychological support for the victims of the current crisis in the Middle East.
A large number of refugee children do not have access to public education. In many cases, they will have already missed key years in their early education due to conflict during that time. Without urgent support, these children risk becoming part of so-called “lost generation”.
Our aim is to prevent this educational deficit. We have established three non-formal schools in Lebanon: in Beirut, Arsal, and Saida. For younger refugee children, we run a core program aimed at preparing them for entry tests into Lebanese public education. For older children, over the age of compulsory education, and refugee women we offer literacy and skills programs as a means of empowering them to navigate a new world.
