Tuyoor Al-Amal (Birds Of Hope) Tuyoor Al Amal (Birds Of Hope) School, is located in Jabbal Al-Badawi, Tripoli, Lebanon, it was established by Syrian refugees under the leadership of a former English literature teacher Mustafa Al-Haj in November 2013, opening its doors to 350 refugee pupils living in Dier Ammar near Tripoli, Lebanon.
Today Tuyoor Al-Amal is split over 3 sites, providing for education to over 3,000 displaced Syrian children aged 4 -18, teaching the National Lebanese English Curriculum. There are 126 members of staff including drivers, janitors and former Syrian teachers and qualified Lebanese and Palestinian teachers, who teach Mathematics, English, Science, Arabic, Art and Physical Education.
Tuyoor Al-Amal caters primarily for Syrian refugee children, who cannot enrol in formal schools, owing to cost, transportation, discrimination, and language difficulties. Tuyoor Al-Amal also enrols children of Palestinian refugees and poor Lebanese families who are unable to enrol in formal schools.
The students in our schools are assessed during the school year with four tests and two-term exams. At the end of each year, the students are awarded a certificate that explains the students’ progress during the school year.
More than Education
In addition to providing education to Syrian refugee children, which is the most cost-effective way safeguarding vulnerable families, the school also works with specialists to provides mental health care support, for the children and their families.
The school also plays an important role in carrying out community cohesion activities involving the Syrian, Palestinian refugees and the Lebanese host communities that live Jabbal Al-Badawi.
