The Education Access and Quality Learning in Lebanon initiative is part of the Ministry of Education and Higher Education’s (MEHE) national strategy Reaching All Children with Education for 2016-2021 (RACE II). The project aims to improve equitable access to quality and gender-responsive education opportunities for children between the age of 3 and 18 in Lebanon. It focuses on addressing the barriers that prevent vulnerable children from Syria and Lebanon from accessing educational opportunities. The project works with the Ministry of Education to strengthen policies and systems and improve its ability to ensure better education services and sustain increased and equitable access to quality education. The project aligns with the Government of Lebanon's Crisis Response Plan, particularly in terms of priority interventions for education and the education objective identified in the Lebanon Compact to scale up access to education and strengthen the formal education system

Expected results 

The expected results of this project include: (1) increased demand and reduced cultural, financial, and gender-barriers for enrollment and retention into formal and non-formal education and early development opportunities for children; (2) enhanced delivery of quality of educational services and learning environments for girls and boys that ensure relevant, equitable learning outcomes; and (3) strengthened governance and technical capacity of the Ministry of Education and Higher Education in Lebanon in delivering gender-responsive quality education to girls and boys.
