Hard Lessons

Barriers facing Syrian refugee children with disabilities

“Hard Lessons” study conducted by World Vision and Action for Humanity (AFH) looks into Syrian children with disabilities’ exposure to protection risks in Lebanon and Northwest Syria.

Between October 2022 and January 2023, WV and AFH conducted a mixed methods study that included surveys with 144 caregivers and parents of children with disabilities in Lebanon and Northwest Syria – as well as Focus Group Discussions (FGDs) with children with and without disabilities, caregivers and teachers.

In the midst of deteriorating socio-economic contexts and growing barriers to inclusive education, displaced and refugee Syrian girls and boys with disabilities were found to be more exposed to protections risks such as child labour and early marriage. Find out more by reading the full report.
