a free education to all, without any registrations fees.

below is the description given by UNICEF Lebanon ” Free education up to grade nine will be provided for all children – Lebanese and non-Lebanese – in public schools this year. The Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MEHE), with the support of USD94 million through UNICEF, UNHCR, and international donors, launched its ‘Back to School’ campaign for free education today. The conference was headed by the Minister of Education and Higher Education Elias Abou Saab, and attended by key donors, including representatives from UNICEF, UNHCR, the Delegation of the European Union, the Embassies of Germany, United States, United Kingdom, Norway, Netherland, France, and the World Bank representing the Lebanon Syria Crisis Trust Fund.”

16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence Campaign has announced its new theme for 2015.

16dayscampaign theme lebanon

The Campaign that will be held from November 25 to December 10 will focus on:

“From Peace in the Home to Peace in the World: Make Education Safe for All!”

Below is a clearer view of what is thought of under the theme of 2015:

Under this global theme, the 16 Days Campaign is asking you to join in advancing the right to education and challenging violence, discrimination, and inequity in education at the intersection of gender, race or ethnicity, religion, real or perceived sexual orientation, socio-economic status, and other social identifiers. You can start thinking about what spaces and access to education look like in your community, country, or region. In planning your participation, consider the ways in which militarism affects education, whether in peacetime, during conflict, in refugee and IDP camps, in indigenous territories, in schools and other education settings, or even on the streets. Consider how violence and increased militarism has affected the education of young people in countries that have recently experienced different types of armed conflict; how extremism through State and non-State policies and practices have affected the right to education, especially for girls; and how government expenditures on arms and other priorities of militarization set the tone in funding for safe and accessible education for all .”

In Lebanon Education is a huge domain in which clear action plans need to be implemented, the Problem is access and quality of education for several people living in Lebanon.

I am thinking of all those IDPs camp in which I was greeted by yound children that didn’t go to school, and stayed in the camps all day long.

below is the link the website:

ABOUT THE 16 DAYS CAMPAIGN

Since its founding in 1991, the Center for Women’s Global Leadership has been the global coordinator of the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence Campaign. For the past twenty-five years, the 16 Days Campaign has been dedicated to advocacy and coordination of work in support of ending gender-based violence at the local, national, and international levels. The dates, November 25th (International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women) and December 10th (Human Rights Day), were chosen to emphasize the links between ending gender-based violence and human rights principles and highlight that gender-based violence is an international human rights violation. The 16 Days Campaign is used as an organizing strategy to call for the elimination of all forms of gender-based violence by individuals, groups, and institutions throughout the world.

As a mother of a young baby boy, looking for a school in #Lebanon,  I was happy to read the last decision taken and published in the official  gazette ( Source: No 23 of the 4/6/2015)  in Lebanon by the Ministry of work ( Circular Nb 2068 ). Now the employees having a work contract can benefit from a scholarship allowance  for the education of their kids at school for the 2014 and 2015 educational year. 🙂 As for the sums allocated, here is a brief about what has been decided:

  • 300 000LL for students in public schools;
  • 750 000LL for students in private schools or universities;
  • 450 000LL for students enrolled in the Lebanese university;

As the Circular says: the children must be between 4 and 25 years old. If the employee benefits from an allowance that is higher than this one, it shouldn’t be changed. this is what is written in the text. For more details attached the picture of the official gazette/ JARIDA RASMIYA Even if the sums are “tight” this IS a GREAT Step for WORKING parents!!!!!! Now Make sure to ask your accountant and boss to IMPLEMENT This Marsoum!!! youhou! Below is a picture of it!

great writing skills Beirut Boy!! for those interested, do not hesitate to read this story!

Hi mom. It's me. Beirut Boy.

No one knew the answer.

I’m looking around left and right, and no one knew the answer.

Bunch of useless idiots.

“Ovulation”, I say, softly. I didn’t want the whole class to hear.

But of course, Miss Sara had to say her favorite line in the whole world. “Sit up straight, and raise your voice”.

“Ovulation”, I say loudly and reluctantly.

“Correct. Bravo Jad”. She smiles at me then starts explaining to the rest of the idiots. “Ovulation is the process that occurs in the middle of the menstrual cycle”. She’s explaining something we already learned about 3 years ago, in the 7th grade.

Joseph leans towards me and whispers: “I always knew you had a pussy”.

“Yeah. A big p-p-p-ussy”, I snap back at him. The boy’s a stutterer. No wonder he doesn’t get any p-p-p-pussy. He takes that smirk out of his face, looks at me like I…

Good news for researchers and Students!

Rita Chemaly!

To mark International Women’s Day, UNESCO and the UIS have jointly released the World Atlas of Gender Equality in Education, which includes over 120 maps, charts and tables featuring a wide range of sex-disaggregated indicators.

 

The vivid presentation of information and analysis calls attention to persistent gender disparities and the need for greater focus on girls’ education as a human right.

 

The atlas illustrates the educational pathways of girls and boys and the changes in gender disparities over time. It hones in on the gender impact of critical factors such as national wealth, geographic location, investment in education, and fields of study.

 

 

The data show that:

  • Although access to education remains a challenge in many countries, girls enrolled in primary school tend to outperform boys. Dropout rates are higher for boys than girls in 63% of countries with data.
  • Countries with high proportions of girls enrolled in secondary education have more women teaching primary education than men.
  • Women are the majority of tertiary students in two-thirds of countries with available data. However, men continue to dominate the highest levels of study, accounting for 56% of PhD graduates and 71% of researchers.

The atlas also provides a fresh perspective on the progress countries are making towards gender-related targets set by the international community under Education for All and the Millennium Development Goals.

 

The print edition of the atlas will be accompanied by an online data mapping tool that enables users to track trends over time, adapt maps and export data. This eAtlas will be regularly updated with the latest available data from the UNESCO Institute for Statistics.
