Syrian child refugees deprived of education

Unable to go to school, many of the estimated 400,000 minors in Lebanon roam the streets, working to survive.

    About 400,000 Syrian children have fled into neighbouring Lebanon since the start of the conflict. However, less than a quarter of them are getting any formal education, the UN says.

    Many of those unable to go to school are now on the streets working to survive.
