Training courses are slated to be held by UNRWA for Palestinian refugees with special needs in AlSabina refugee camp, in Syria’s Rif Dimashq province.
The move falls in line with the Agency’s disability inclusion program. The refugees will attend training sessions in hairdressing and photography.
In order to be able to take part in the training the refugee should be familiar with reading and writing and aged between 19 and 40.
The United Nations has identified Palestinian refugees in/from Syria as one of the most marginalized and poorest communities in the region.
More than eight years of deadly warfare have imperiled the quality of education and access to educational facilities in the ravaged Syrian territories. Palestinian schoolchildren and university students continue to strive for careers that match their dreams for a better future
Upon more than one occasion, the UN has raised alarm bells over the striking upsurge in the rate of school dropouts among the Palestinians of Syria, several among whom have left schools to help feeding their impoverished families in unemployment-stricken refugee camps.
