“Education has taken a big setback. Many people cannot afford school,” Nuna with Triumphant Mercy Lebanon says.
“Many kids in private schools have now been obliged to go to a public school, and they’re not happy.”
Private schools have long been the educational “norm” in Lebanon, schooling 60 percent of the country’s 1.25 million students. However, in the 2020–2021 academic year, 55,000 students shifted from private to public schools, putting more strain on another failed state system.
“Usually, public schools are not so great because the teachers’ salaries are not high. So, people are going to spend time there, not educate kids,” Nuna says.
Triumphant Mercy opened its first learning center in a refugee camp in 2013. Now, it operates four centers helping 500 kids.
