“Nobel Prize Winner Malala Yousafzai, in partnership with Kayany Foundation, established the first all-girls school for Syrian refugees in Lebanon in 2015. She celebrated her 18th birthday by going to the school and meeting the new students at a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The Malala Fund continues its partnership with Kayany Foundation, and together they have since established a second Malala Yousafzai all-girls school for Syrian refugees.

“The schools offer secondary-level education based on the official country curriculum, as well as important child and women protection programs that strengthen resilience against various kinds of exploitation and increase opportunities to find jobs and avoid early marriages. The schools also provide vocational and life-skills training through courses in computer literacy, nursing aide, sewing, embroidery, hairdressing and cosmetics. Upon graduation students receive a certificate of accreditation from the Lebanese Ministry of Education and Higher Education.
