It is known that there are above 1,500,000 Syrian Refugees in Lebanon and they’re continuously increasing. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) are two of many institutions that are working with a number of public schools throughout Lebanon, in the hope of making education available for the maximum number of refugees. There are 1,835,840 Syrian refugees currently in Lebanon, who are getting assistance, but also 53.3% of these refugees (978,503) are children between the ages of 1-17. 90,000 of these children are now attending schools, whereas the rest are still struggling in getting themselves registered. This is due to minimal funding that the UNHCR and UNICEF are receiving. The question remains, are the beggars on the streets unregistered refugees or refugees waiting to be registered?
