CEPAL serves Palestinian refugees in Lebanon by increasing their access to education. By raising public awareness in Canada of the plight of refugees, CEPAL also fosters a knowledge exchange between Canadians and Palestinians.
CEPAL facilitates sustainable change by:
- Providing English language training in refugee camps to help Palestinian children and youth pass elementary and secondary school requirements
- Promoting a love of learning and confidence among Palestinian children and youth through active learning
- Creating opportunities for Canadians to learn more about the plight of refugees in Lebanon through awareness raising activities in Canada
We seek a world where all children and youth have access to their basic human rights, including education. As stated in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, we believe that education should be directed to the full development of the human personality and to the strengthening of respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms.
We contribute to this vision through provision of education to Palestinian refugees in Lebanon. We believe that active learning builds confidence, while access to English language training increases Palestinian refugees’ access to higher education, employment opportunities, and global engagement.
