Another component of the same fund, the Abdul Aziz Al Ghurair Refugee Education Fund is supporting undergraduate and specialized diplomas. More than 150 students are benefiting from this program and are pursuing their degrees and diplomas in five universities in Lebanon and abroad. Of these, six students concluded their oneyear programs and graduated: five with teaching diplomas and one from the Nutrition and Dietetics Coordinated Program. Our graduates are now equipped with new sets of skills that correlate directly with employability.

Prior to receiving this opportunity to obtain a Teaching Diploma, Farah had graduated from university with a BS in Mathematics, yet could not secure a job.
