School capacity in central Bekaa is over-stretched with many Syrian refugee parents wanting to enrol their kids in school. At this public school (Rawda), the maximum student capacity is normally 300, but the school stopped registering students at 382 this year. The school principal and teachers' offices had to be turned into classrooms.
One refugee interviewed says: I have 4 children that I attempted to register in school but there was no space. We urge the government to help us, otherwise our children will not be able to enrol in schools this year.
With the help of MoSA, UNHCR built shelter boxes outside the school to replace school principal and teachers' offices.
