Save the Children centres help working children realise their rights

Save the Children is helping children as young as seven to escape child labour in Lebanon by teaching them about their rights at three recently opened centres in Akkar, North Lebanon.

Some 200 children, who work in a range of occupations, including painting, mechanics, butchery and construction, come to these centres in Bireh, Mounseh and Akroum where they can spend time relaxing after a long, hard day’s work.

Save the Children’s centre in Mount Lebanon was the stage of a series of spectacular performances, as children took part in an event to mark the end of a successful five-month Education and Child Protection project.

A daily trip to safety

Samer enjoys being at Save the Children's child-friendly space

There is something missing in the few yards Samer* will travel to join his friends in the nearby tent today. The encouraging voice of his brother will no more be there to cheer him up. Bilal died in a car crash last night.
