Social Revitalization for Displaced Children in North West Frontier Province, Pakistan

As a result of increasing militant activity in May 2009, the Pakistan army commenced military operations in Buner, Lower Dir, and Swat Valley. The majority of the local population began emigrating to Mardan and Swabi in order to avoid the conflict. By the end of May, the number of Internally Displaced People (IDPs) had swelled to just over three million; many of whom fled their homes without money or other resources.

Enhancing Non-Formal Education for Youth in Nahr El-Bared
In May 2007, Nahr El-Bared Camp (NBC), a refugee camp of 40,000 Palestinians in northern Lebanon, was devastated by three months of fighting between Fatah Al-Islam militants and the Lebanese army.  Up to 60% of the buildings and 80% of the homes were either severely or completely destroyed as a result of the shelling and bombing.  More than 433 businesses were directly affected by the fighting, 4,976 jobs were lost, and unemployment rose to 80% compared to the 27% before the fighting.  Now, three years later, many families still remain dependant on the distribution of food and supplies from humanitarian organizations.
