Rihab’s Story

dsc00963

Rihab, age 11

Rihab is 11 years old. She is from Bayadah, Homos and came to Lebanon five years ago fleeing the war in Syria. She has five brothers and sisters and this year she is attending our tent school program. In the last five years she was in Lebanon she went for one year to a school sponsored by a different organization. She didn’t like it as teachers over there didn’t care much about the kids or their education. Rihab loves our school and loves her teacher. “My teacher never screams at me, but always encourages me and takes time to explain what I don’t understand,” Rihab said. She likes English the most as she wants to learn a different language.
