Rainbow Fish helps Syrian and Lebanese Cohesion

February 13, 2016

 

The recent influx of Syrian refugees has the potential to significantly influence the Lebanese economy, a burden which may have a substantial impact on development and could be a driver of further violence in Lebanon.

 

One of the issue Lebanese communities face at a grass roots level, is the integration of Syrian refugees into the education system.

 

But a program lead by global NGO Search for Common Ground is making strides in ensuring the next generation is a tolerant one, with their Rainbow of Hope initiative.

 

Classes set up for 6- to 11-year-old children in 25 Lebanese communities focus on English language skills and conflict resolution through play and creativity.
