ANERA: Maryam studies to become an English teacher
Anera believes that placing women and girls at the heart of our programming helps us safeguard women and work toward achieving gender equality. We implement this commitment through initiatives like our youth empowerment, education and employability program, one of our biggest programs in Lebanon.
A major component of this program is the math and literacy classes, in which we offer English and Arabic language courses and life-skills sessions to thousands of students across the country. One of our local partners in our current literacy classes is the Women’s Programs Association. Together, we are providing 30 girls and young women in Burj El Barajneh Refugee Camp with educational support.
