UNICEF: Assessment of the UNICEF MIN-ILA/ Reaching School Program

UNICEF commissioned InfoPro Research to hold focus group discussions with Syrian refugees who are receiving assistance from the Reaching School program, the MIN-ILA program or both programs in the regions of Bekaa/Baalbeck, South/Nabatieh, North and Akkar. A total of eight focus group discussions were held by InfoPro. The focus groups explored the perception of beneficiaries with regard to the MIN-ILAand Reaching School programs, particularly focusing on the programs’ design, monetization, and its impact on the lives of the beneficiaries. The focus groups also delved into recommendations and suggestions for improving the program to better suit refugees needs regarding the transportation of their children to school.
