TCCT believes it is essential to work in partnership with recognised local and international NGOs that have an established humanitarian and educational track-record in Lebanon as well as other local partners pursuing the same goals.
Our partner in this project is Caritas Lebanon (see joint announcement). Founded in 1972, Caritas Lebanon serves the poorest throughout Lebanon without discrimination.
Part of the Caritas network which has a global reputation for human development and poverty alleviation, Caritas Lebanon is uniquely position to address the local challenges posed by Lebanon’s underfunded and overcrowded public education system. Its ground-breaking ‘Afterschool Program’ is founded on the principle that maintaining one child in school and allowing them to complete their education has the potential to significantly impact not only on their siblings and immediate family, but also their neighbours, communities and society.
Caritas Lebanon works in cooperation with government ministries and authorities and various non-governmental organisations. At international level and beyond the Caritas Confederation network, several partnerships are in place with the European Union, UN agencies, USAID and other organisations.
