I've managed to register them into schools but it was exhausting, I had to go from school to school and I'm not familiar with the area." Mariam's 10 year old son Ahmed will be taking remedial classes that will help him catch up on school An unaffordable choice …that's now made possible by UNICEF and the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees in the Near East The organizations have been providing text books, stationery and setting up classes for Palestinian refugee children living in Lebanon… SOUNDBITE (Arabic) Malak, Student, Yarmouth Girls School: "The kits are very important to me and to all the Palestinian students. We are three children at home and we're not able to secure any school materials." Back in Shatila, Ahmed is nervous about going to school … SOUNDBITE (Arabic) Ahmed*, 10-year-old Palestinian refugee from Syria : "Here, everything is taught in English and over there (in Syria) it's in Arabic, English is a subject on its own taught separately. Here, even math is taught in English and I don't like that. I'd rather it be taught in Arabic" Adapting to a new curriculum and a new life won't be easy...and with the conflict raging in Syria, many more children are likely to join him in this difficult journey *names changed to protect identities
