This project is currently implemented in Amel’s center of Haret Hreik and targets 150 children refugees and vulnerable Lebanese aged from 7 to 14 years old.
The activities take place three days a week, from 4:00 to 7:00 pm. Two days are dedicated to homework support and remedial classes, and the third day is dedicated to recreational or artistic animations as movies, drawing, painting, singing, dancing, theatre, sport, etc.
The children are supervised by six teachers, three animators, and volunteers. They also benefit from a psycho-social support since one social worker and one psychologist are dedicated to this project.
In addition to the daily activities, community events with cultural activities are regularly organized, as well as awareness sessions. These events permit to strengthen the link with the families, and to raise awareness among the children and their parents about some quotidian issues (as violence, social behavior, hygiene, self-confidence, etc.).
