The School


Gharsah school was established in 2014 in the Bekaa region of Lebanon by a group of Syrian activists and multidisciplinary professionals wishing to contribute to alleviating the multiple hardships of Syrian refugees through educational, Psychosocial, and civil empowerment for children, adolescent, and women. And it is located in Bekaa Valley – Al Marj – Lebanon.

Mohamad and his family contacted Syrian activists and education professionals in Lebanon and Germany.
They gathered donations and started the school in a tent. By winning a prize and with grants from Molham Volunteering Team they were able to build a real school in May 2014. Further funding was supplied for a year by Trócaire and Cafod.

Now we are in dear need for new support to keep the school open.
