Retention Support

The Retention Support program will benefit 4,800 children who are at risk of dropping out of formal education in schools in Beirut, Mt Lebanon, Bekaa/Baalbek and North Lebanon.



Access & Integration

Ana Aqra will implement the CBECE program with 2,700 children aged 3-6 years old and their families, who have no access to KG, prioritizing those about to enroll in Grade 1 for the 2016/17 school year.



2,000 out-of-school children aged 7-14 years old will also benefit from the Basic Literacy & Numeracy program.

Quality Instruction Towards Access and Basic Education Improvement (QITABI) – USAID

The USAID-funded QITABI project aims to expand equitable access and improve learning outcomes for vulnerable students in Lebanese public schools. The project is led by World Learning in partnership with Ana Aqra Association, Management Systems International (MSI) and AMIDEAST.
QITABI consists of three components of which Ana Aqra Association is involved in Component One: Improving reading outcomes for primary level public school students.

Component 1 focuses on improving early grade students’ reading skills in the Arabic language in 260 primary public schools, grades 1 to 4. QITABI’s approach includes conducting Early Grade Reading Assessment (EGRA) Baseline and implementing two-year Early Grade Reading (EGR) Intervention based on Balanced Literacy Approach. The project’s EGR intervention includes capacity building of DOPS monitors, CERD master trainers and training/coaching of around 960 primary teachers by providing day-to-day support through the project’s Early Grade Reading (EGR) facilitators, in addition to holding parental/community awareness Reading activities. QITABI’s intervention in public schools provides key resources including educational materials such as carpets, flip charts, audio system, and bookshelves, and classroom libraries composed of read-aloud and leveled reading books for grades 1-4 to impact reading instruction and learning for 19,200 students.

The effectiveness of the project activities is reliant on the presence of strong institutional systems within MEHE to ensure sustainability. Activities under this component will strengthen MEHE’s capacity to monitor education services, design, and oversee reform efforts effectively.
