Date 13.11.2018

With the support of the EU Trust Fund in response to the Syrian Crisis, the ‘EU Madad Fund’, the organisations AVSI, Terre des Hommes Italy, Terre des Hommes Netherlands and War Child Holland launched the project ‘Back to the Future’. Over a three-year period (2016-2019), the project will enable more than 21,700 Syrian, Lebanese and Jordanian children to go to school.

The “Back to the Future” project promotes enrolment and improves retention in the formal education system for refugee and vulnerable children from local communities in Lebanon and Jordan, and through the creation of suitable environment by rehabilitating school buildings. The project supports formal and non-formal activities for pre-school and school-aged children (aged three to 17).
