Kayany’s First Primary Schools

Nahryia School

In summer 2014, two schools were established in central Bekaa: Jeld School in Majdal Anjar and Telyani school in Bar Elias. The schools provided basic literacy and numeracy sessions to a total of 650 Syrian refugee children. A partnership with Save the Children was established in October 2014 to train the teaching staff and provide child protection sessions.

A third school was built in 2014 in Bar Elias, the Nahrya School; 500 students were enrolled for the academic year of 2014-2015. Rotary Germany and the Kuzbari family funded the school.


Program Structure:

  • Community Based Education offered to students from grade 1 to 6 through the provision of the official Lebanese curriculum supported by intensive English language support classes.
  • Child Protection and Psychosocial Support provided at each school by a social worker who conducts psychosocial support and resilience sessions.
  • Capacity Building through providing regular teacher training programs.
