LSESD (Lebanese Society for Educational and Social Development)

Teenage girls at SKILD
Where are they?: 


What do they do?: 

LSESD seeks to serve the church in Lebanon and the Arab World through spiritual, educational and social development.

Who benefits?: 

The church and the community in Beirut.


LSESD runs many programmes, and we have helped to support the following:

  • School for Syrian refugee childen. In Lebanon, 80% of Syrian refugee children are not in school – many have been out of school for at least the past two years. This school provides children from kindergarten up to Year 7/8 access to education using the Syrian curriculum and using predominantly Syrian teachers. 
  • Smart Kids with Individual Learning Differences (SKILD), a centre for children and teenagers with special education needs.
  • Winterization project in Zahle among Syrian refugees. Embrace sent LSESD £50,000 to help meet the urgent needs of those who were in temporary accommodation and with no source of income. Read more...
