WHAT WE DO

SB OverSeas is a non-profit organisation based in Belgium dedicated to providing humanitarian aid to refugees and victims of conflict.
Our operations are divided into the following three activities: education, emergency aid and empowerment.
SB OverSeas works with refugees in two geographical focus areas: Lebanon and Belgium. In Lebanon, we distribute emergency aid and run educational and empowerment programs in our three centres based in Arsal, Beirut and Saida. In Belgium, we work with unaccompanied minors in order to foster integration in three reception and transit centres.

REPORT: Not Just a School – The case for prioritising the educational space for refugee support in Lebanon

After working with displaced Syrians for over seven years, this report is a collection of field notes from our three educational centres that describe not only the context of and why we operate our projects as we do, but also to primarily answer the question of how to we understand the impact of education on a community in a crisis and protracted displaced situation as is the case of refugees in Lebanon.

OUR STORY

SB OverSeas began as community effort amongst concerned citizens in Brussels who decided to intervene in the unfolding humanitarian crisis in Syria.

As these efforts grew in involvement and impact, something became increasingly obvious: providing a safe environment for children was a short-term solution, but there was no long term hope for a generation of kids who had had their education interrupted by the war. It became clear that an entire generation of children were being left on the sidelines of society not equipped with the skills or opportunities to regain control of their lives. With this in mind, SB OverSeas opened its first school in Lebanon, home to over 1,5 million Syrian refugees.
 
Since opening our first school, we have expanded to having three schools in Shatila, Arsal and Saida. We have also expanded our programs to provide vocational courses to adults as well as empowerment courses to combat the increasingly prevalent practice of child marriage.
 
Our headquarters are located in Brussels, Belgium where we coordinate these activities as well as running our SB Espoir project, a weekend integration program with unaccompanied minors living in asylum-seeker accommodation centres.
