Who We Are

Education is one of the 4 impact initiatives under Khaddit Beirut. We are a group of local and international experts, professors, graduate students and activists who came together to ensure a better education system for our future generation by improving this sector through consultancy, trainings, and developments.

 

 

 

Gaps

Education seeks to contribute to address the following major issues in the recovery process:

  • Aid agencies have been setting the agendas for development in the education sector from a project management/ relief work mind set.
  • Government agencies (MEHE, CERD, DOPS) in charge of the sector lack a coherent scientifically grounded strategic vision to guide and coordinate relief and development efforts.
  • Civil society organizations and NGOs engaged in the education sector relief work lack adequate expertise in education in emergencies and are not regulated for quality control.
  • Key stake holders, especially school-based educators in both public and private schools have limited say over the support they receive or the design of the initiatives they are asked to implement.

 

 

 

 

 

Objectives

  • Contribute and influence the development of customized quality criteria based on educational best practices and case studies,
  • Help assess the needs, identify gaps, and provide solutions to schools on the short-term and long-term.
  • Map and document existing resources and initiatives to facilitate efficient coordination among multiple networks and stakeholders.
