Bordering Syria, Lebanon is home to 1 million Syrian refugees and more than 175,000 Palestinian refugees who often live in precarious conditions. Children are the first to experience domestic and sexual violence, exploitation, early marriage and dropping out of school. Tdh protects them, improves their living conditions and gives them hope for the future.

What we do

Child protection

We individually support vulnerable people and distribute materials adapted to their needs. We assist refugee children, working or living on the street, and their families to improve their resilience through psycho-social and recreational activities. For girls at risk of gender-based violence, we have set up reception centres where they can talk freely about the problems they face. We are strengthening the long-term ability of community actors through the creation of child protection networks in Palestinian camps and awareness raising among refugee and host communities.

Access to Justice

We are carrying out research to promote and support the implementation of child-oriented restorative justice. Representatives from the formal and traditional Lebanese justice system are instructed and trained in child protection, children’s rights and child justice. Tdh is one of the only organisations to document the mechanisms of traditional justice in the Palestinian camps in Lebanon and to strengthen the abilities of religious judges -actors of the formal justice system- to promote the establishment of restorative justice in family law that respects children’s rights.
