Due to the multi-faceted crisis that is affecting Lebanon and the Lebanese people, UNICEF Lebanon is now working to lessen gender-based discrimination in local schools.

The organization signed a new agreement with the National Commission For Lebanese Women (NCLW) aiming to minimize the problems faced by Lebanese adolescent girls, in terms of risk of violence, child marriage, and school dropout.

Titled “Empowered and Capable Girls: Education for All,” the agreement with the NCLW will work on promoting girls’ access to their rights, while also prioritizing their needs for protection against violence in schools.

In recent years, UNICEF Lebanon has been working to promote gender equality in the country, especially in shielding Lebanon’s vulnerable young girls from any kind of violence.

Last year, Elie Saab launched with UNICEF an initiative to provide safety and education to vulnerable girls by donating a portion from Elie Saab’s Parfums’ 10th-anniversary campaign to the “Integrated Education and Well-Being for Vulnerable Girls in Lebanon Program.” 

The program worked to ensure that girls and young women are provided with basic education and skills training that will protect them from gender-based violence (GBV).
