Since June 2018, Sky School has been running a new course ‘Peace-building in your community’ with partners in six countries around the world. 100 young refugees have taken part, and graduated as young peacebuilders with an aspiration to positively impact their communities.
We are thrilled to announce that Sky School has been asked to join the UNHCR’s #With Refugees Coalition. Sky School is one of more than 450 universities, foundations, faith-based organizations, youth groups, UN Agencies, and NGOs who are working in their own unique capacities to promote access to education, shelter and livelihoods to the refugee demographic throughout the world.
Through SOS Children’s Villages Lebanon’s Education in Emergencies project, Sky School courses such as ‘Social Entrepreneurship’, ‘Peace-building’, and ‘Maths for Change’ will be delivered to 400 Syrian refugees and Lebanese youth in the Bekaa Valley in 2019.
