The following report explores the incompatibility of recent decisions, by the General Security and the Ministry of Education regarding migrants and their children, with national and international legislation. In particular, the first part of this report analyzes a recent unpublished General Security decision whose impact has denied residency renewal for children of migrant workers belonging to category three and four. The second part of this report looks at a series of decisions by the Ministry of Education limiting the enrollment of non-Lebanese children to public and semi-private schools.
Insan Association has started a fundraising campaign on Education for Refugee Children, through the June 2015 Global Open Challenge of GlobalGiving.
What Challenge is that? It is a Challenge to raise $5000 from 40 different donors or more that we have to meet between June 1st to June 30th. If we can raise that amount, we are automatically secured to stay on GlobalGiving site for the next 2 years and qualified for a corporate donation of $10,000. If you donate 25 to 100 US$, Global Giving will match 20% to your donated amount.
Spread the word about our project and the Challenge to everyone, to your friends and family; together, we can make the difference.
