Since 2013, War Child Holland (hereifter War Child) and UNICEF have worked together, with different partnership agreements, to identify, refer and integrate out-of-school children into the formal education system, as well as to provide non-formal education altertives. Over this time span, War Child has steered its programmes to meet the needs on the ground and to reflect the priorities outlined in RACE, the tiol education strategy developed by the Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MEHE) with the support of the UN and the intertiol community aiming to enroll and retain all children in the formal education system. The purpose of this partnership is to provide Community-Based Early Childhood Education (CB-ECE) activities targeting 2,550 (slots) for children aged 3-5 years without access to Kindergarten (108 sessions per cycle over 3 cycles). WCH will also provide Adapted BLN (A-BLN) activities targeting 1,150 children aged 10-14 years. A-BLN is the same curriculum as BLN but it is adapted in a way that the most vulnerable groups (children with disabilities, working children, risk of early marriage, etc.) are able to attend the whole programme since the time is adapted to their circumstances. The child will attend sessions 2 days a week, 3 hours per day. War Child will also Conduct community outreach for most vulnerable groups, including children with disabilities, children in worst form of child labour, stateless children, etc. and will include a whole outreach component to the PD. War Child will use the unified ECE package that has been developed by CERD and a range of tiol partners with the support of UNICEF. The interventions will take place in 4 main governorates (Tripoli, Akkar, Beirut/Mount Lebanon, Bekaa/Baalbak Hermel) and will include healthy light meals/scks for the children, minimum transportation when required, learning materials and other support services as well as engagement with parents and community actors. Inclusion: WCH will ensure that at least 3% of the target includes children with disabilities (motor, hearing; seeing; speech, intellectual, learning disability; in all governorates). WCH will ensure that the caseload is diverse, includes challenging cases, and does not only include mild cases. Most vulnerable groups are also included in the ABLN programme? children with disabilities 5%, risk of early marriage or married 2%, working children 70%, stateless 5% and the percentage may change depending on the area. The following support will be provided to support their inclusion through: (i) Provision of Inclusion Officer/Special Educator, (ii) Provision of specialized services like speech therapy, psychomotor therapy, mobility coaching, etc. (iii) Referral to Humanity & Inclusion (Handicap Intertiol) for special needs supplies, (iv) Capacity Building and Mentoring (trainings provided by UNICEF to be cascaded by partner to their outreach workers, teachers and relevant staff.
