Lebanon, refugees serving refugees

28 October 2016

The UN Volunteers programme promotes voluntarism for peace and development. In Lebanon, it partnered with UNRWA to recruit volunteer teachers – who are Palestine refugees themselves – for teaching Palestine refugee children displaced from Syria.

Etab, Rachel and Khaled are Palestine refugees born and raised in Lebanon. They have been assigned as national UN Volunteers teachers of English and Arabic to Syrian-born Palestine Refugees (PRS) pupils. Fleeing the Syrian conflict, the pupils are temporarily settled with their families in Lebanon.
