Saja from Lebanon: Watch the Video Meet Saja from the Nahr El Bared refugee camp in Lebanon. Watch the video.

“I dream of being on the moon,” 13-year-old Saja said softly when we asked about her hopes and dreams. Saja attends an after-school program at the Ghassan Kanafani Cultural Foundation which ANERA has supported for many years.

Children living in the refugee camps of Lebanon are often deprived of the educational development that they deserve. That’s why remedial education programs like the one Saja attends are so important.

While it’s not quite a trip to the moon, being able to explore her hobbies and actively engage in learning also gives Saja the chance to briefly escape the reality of life in the camp.
