International Alert

Safe to Learn

International Alert will focus on violence prevention, response and capacity building to support refugee children and children living in refugee-hosting communities. This project will use school- and community-based approaches to increase awareness and response to violence against children, involving parents, teachers, community members, and children themselves. Over 15 months, this project will work in three districts of Lebanon to:

  1. Raise awareness of the laws and policies that currently protect children from violence in Lebanon, while also developing child safeguarding policies to strengthen such protection mechanisms in the classroom
  2. Increase children’s education on their rights and alternatives to violence
  3. Develop action plans in three schools and six learning centres, helping nearly 300 teachers prevent and respond to violence in more effective ways
  4. Push for stronger legislation alongside partners from the education and child protection sectors, promoting change through advocacy
