Vocational education, prevention of eviction of impoverished families and improvement of the fire safety in informal settlement

Since 2011, Lebanon has seen a significant increase in population. This has been due to the influx of Syrian refugees, Palestinian refugees from Syria, and Lebanese people who previously lived in Syria. A population increase of more than 20% over 5 years is placing an enormous strain on infrastructure, the healthcare system, education, the supplies of electricity, water and other utilities, as well as the housing market. In 2015, the number of refugees fluctuated between 1.1 and 1.2 million, which produced change, especially on the market of the cheapest and lowest-standard property. Even though thousands of new flats have been built, rents for low-standard housing are still higher than before to the crisis.

A big majority of refugees slide ever deeper into poverty because of shrinking incomes and the living costs in Lebanon, which far outstrip those in Syria.

Vocational education, prevention of eviction of impoverished families and improvement of the fire safety in informal settlement

The project aims to secure the housing for and prevent the eviction of Syrian refugees who live below the poverty line in rented accommodation, to prevent death and loss of property as a result of fires in tent camps, and to make it possible for Syrian refugees and the poorest Lebanese families to use supplementary education and vocational training.
