Children boarding bus in Lebanon

Field Trip

Monthly school outings are a special treat for these Bedouin children who don´t have the opportunity to travel far from their homes in the Bekaa Valley of Lebanon. Operated by a Bedouin chief, the Christian school provides education for 130 Bedouin students in the mornings and about 300 Syrian refugee children in the afternoons. The influx of refugees has placed a great strain on the school´s resources, and teachers have at times worked without pay.
