Lebanon

Since the outbreak of war in neighbouring Syria, over 1.5 million Syrian people have sought shelter in Lebanon. The small country of 6 million residents also plays host to nearly 500,000 Palestinian refugees. SPARK supports the most vulnerable, marginalised youth in Lebanon to continue their higher (vocational) education and find legal employment. Job opportunities are scarce, even for young Lebanese people (youth unemployment is over 35%), but laws prevent refugee communities from entering certain employment fields. We aim to break the cycle of aid dependence that refugees face by providing courses relevant to rebuilding their home countries or access to the labour market.
