An initiative by Emirati businessman Abdul Aziz Al Ghurair, the Abdul Aziz Al Ghurair Refugee Education Fund (REF) facilitates online learning in Lebanon. Through a partnership with Discovery Education, specialising in digital curriculum resources, the Abdul Aziz Al Ghurair Refugee Education Fund is increasing access to online education for thousands of refugees and vulnerable youth in Lebanon.
The Abdul Aziz Al Ghurair Covid-19 Online Learning Emergency Fund for Refugee Education was launched by Al Ghurair in April 2020 to ensure vulnerable populations are able to continue their learning without interruption. This partnership with Discovery Education will help fill the educational gaps that have emerged because of the COVID-19 crisis. This programme will reach 5,000 at-risk students in addition to over 17,500 students already being helped by REF in Jordan, Lebanon and the UAE.
As part of the partnership with the Abdul Aziz Al Ghurair Refugee Education Fund, Discovery Education will collaborate with local organisations in Lebanon to provide access to high-quality digital learning resources aligned to the Lebanese curriculum for students in Grade 8-12. This partnership is a component of the Abdul Aziz Al Ghurair Refugee Education Fund’s efforts to help 5,000 refugees and marginalised youth communities transition to Grades 9 and 12.
The Abdul Aziz Al Ghurair Covid-19 Online Learning Emergency Fund for Refugee Education will also provide students access to devices and internet connection to ensure their Discovery Education experience is not obstructed by any technical difficulty or lack of equipment.
As students in Lebanon continue to face multi-faceted challenges with an unprecedented high risk of dropping out of school, this initiative wherein Abdul Aziz Al Ghurair Refugee Education Fund facilitates online learning in Lebanon along with Discovery Education comes in a timely manner.
“The economic crisis followed by the pandemic and the devasting blast in Beirut have forced Lebanon to adapt to a new challenging reality. We are proud of this partnership with Discovery Education as digital education is the new go-to solution for education, this programme ensures refugees and vulnerable youth have effective access to high-quality education that they would not have otherwise,” stated Al Ghurair, chairman of Abdulla Al Ghurair Foundation for Education and founder of the Abdul Aziz Al Ghurair Refugee Education Fund.
