The Madad Education project started out as a one-room library in Hay Tanak run by volunteers who helped students from the neighborhood with their homework before and after school. The project has now expanded into two centers with 4 classrooms each, one in Nejmeh Square and the other in the original Hay Tanak location. The project also now is run by hired teachers who run classes for homework support, for children who have dropped out of school from two years ago or more, as well as for young children to help prepare to enter formal education. The community here consists of nearly 65% Syrian, 35% Lebanese, under 1% Palestinian, and we work with all members of the community regardless of nationality.
