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.

 Three champions of the youth-led project

There are 14 kilometres separating the two villages. One, Majdal Anjar, sits right next to the Syrian border. The other, Qab Elias, lies at the foot of sloping mountains on the edge of the western plateau of Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley.

Though geographically split, social challenges and predicaments unite the two towns.
