Lebanon: Quality Education, the commitment of the British Secretary Piti Pitel
The UK Secretary of State for International Development Priti Patel announced that the UK is delivering on its commitment to invest £160m over 4 years in quality education in Lebanon, a press release said. Compared to last year’s enrollment figures, the funding will contribute to getting 147,000 more children into public schools, while maintaining free enrollment for all. Secretary of State for International Development Priti Patel is the first British Cabinet Minister to visit Lebanon since the new Lebanese government took office. On behalf of the British Government, the Secretary of State for International Development congratulated the President and Prime Minister, and called on the Speaker of Parliament. “The UK has delivered on the promises we made last year, reaching hundreds of thousands of Lebanese and refugees – now it is essential that the international community and host governments alike step up with the funding and reforms needed to complete the ambitious agenda agreed in London.
