Alia and Basma* (right), both aged 12, tackle a maths question at a temporary school in northern Lebanon, set up by UNICEF and Lebanese NGO Beyond Association with the help of UK aid.

"It's good to have the classes here", says Basma.

"I hadn't been able to go to school for a year before because of the conflict.

"I feel much better now that I'm learning again."

"I've been in Lebanon now for two years. First we lived in a house here, but then we had to come to this camp. The camp is better now that the school is here as well".

UK aid is supporting the government of Lebanon, UNICEF and organisations like Beyond Association to help thousands Syrian and Lebanese children who have been affected by the conflict in Syria, as part of the No Lost Generation initiative.

The tent schools aren't part of the formal education system in Lebanon, but are essential to provide safe spaces for the many thousands of Syrian children who are living in in-formal camps and unable to go to Lebanese schools. Support from the UK is also ensuring that every Syrian and Lebanese child in formal education has a pack of core textbooks.
