    foreword

    As an important provider of basic education to Palestine refugees, serving approximately half a million students across the Gaza Strip, West Bank, Syria, Jordan and Lebanon, UNRWA’s Education Programme aims to foster an inclusive, quality and equitable learning environment where the needs of all Palestine refugee children and youth are addressed.

    Protracted conflict and displacement across UNRWA’s five Fields of operation means that many Palestine refugee children and youth are living under difficult conditions, which affects all areas of their life. To address the educational needs of Palestine refugees during emergencies, and build upon the strength of the UNRWA education system, UNRWA has developed a holistic and innovative Education in Emergencies (EiE) programme. This aims to provide safe and supportive quality education, which promotes and addresses students’ well-being.

    The Psychosocial Support Recreational Activities Resource Guide is part of the EiE support and will help UNRWA teachers, counsellors and community members to organize creative and fun learning and recreational activities for all UNRWA children and youth, especially those living in challenging contexts. We hope that teachers, counsellors and community members find this resource guide useful, and that it encourages and supports recreational and learning activities for children and youth.

    Our thanks go to Educate a Child, an Education Above All Programme, for generously funding the development of this Resource Guide. We also thank our colleagues across the Agency’s five Fields of operation, whose experience in teaching and providing psychosocial support during emergencies has been invaluable in the development of the Psychosocial Support Recreation- al Activities Resource Guide.

    Sincerely,

    Caroline Pontefract Director of Education UNRWA – Headquarters, Amman
