BEIRUT - Within the context of its program to support vulnerable Lebanese communities and Syrian refugees in Lebanon, the United Nations Children's Fund is supporting the Lebanese public education system through funds from global donors, prioritizing the enrollment of Lebanese and non-Lebanese school-aged children into formal public education.

UNICEF notes that funds from the government of China have contributed to raising awareness of the importance of education and improving the quality of education through the provision of school supplies and teacher training.

Chinese-funded educational supplies were distributed in October to around 86,000 Syrian refugee students in Lebanon by Chinese Ambassador to Lebanon Wang Kejian, who was joined by Lebanese Education Minister Marwan Hamadeh and UNICEF representative in Lebanon Tanya Chapuisat.
