Education: a basic right
UNRWA has been the main provider of free, basic education to Palestine refugees for more than 60 years.
We run 700 schools in Gaza, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and the West Bank, including East Jerusalem.
It is challenging work, as poverty, frequent incidents of armed conflict and movement restrictions pose serious obstacles to refugee children’s education.
