READY FOR TOMORROW: Save the Children Lebanon’s Annual Report 2016

Wednesday 19 July 2017

Save the Children’s Annual Report for 2016 shows that the organisation has reached 366,000 people, including 225,000 children over the past year.

Drawing on programmatic data from across all Lebanese regions where Save the Children operates, Ready for Tomorrow measures in facts and figures the transformation that Save the Children’s interventions have made over 12 months. It highlights stories of children helped across Education, Child Protection, Food Security and Livelihoods, Shelter, Water Sanitation and Hygiene and Child Rights Governance programmes.

The publication offers a summary of a challenging year in the humanitarian endeavour, during which intense efforts were required to attend to socio-economic struggles that plagued vulnerable communities, not least 1.5 million people currently taking refuge in Lebanon.

Save the Children’s Acting Country Director Nadeem Khaddaj said, ‘’[The Annual Report revisits our achievements and activities as we continued to support more children to realise their rights.

‘’..If there were any lessons to be learnt from such testing times, it is the admirable resilience that children have shown. Their burning desire to learn, be active and power through.’’

The report also highlights Save the Children’s work on some of the most critical issues facing vulnerable children in Lebanon, such as child labour and child marriage. It also introduces the two-year Every Last Child campaign which, in Lebanon, calls for a free access to education for all children.
