Detailed description of project Back

The specific purpose of this assessment is to generate substantial knowledge and learning on Non-Formal Education (NFE) in Lebanon under the RACE Strategy, allowing greater understanding of the existing NFE adaptation and/or expansion to reach all children in Lebanon.

The objectives of the assessment are to:

  • Learn from other experiences through the available evaluations conducted at national, regional or global level;
  • Provide specific recommendations based on lessons learned in order to understand current learning outcomes and improve planning and implementation for better delivery of results for children in need of the NFE;
  • Provide specific recommendations that could guide the expansion of the NFE programme; in coverage of children and in time, to the extent of the need.
