Ibrahim, 17 years old, lives in the densely populated Ein el-Hilweh Camp in Saida, the largest camp population in Lebanon. His parents are originally from Ṭabariyyah or Tiberias, but fled in 1948 after the occupation and have lived in the camp since that time.
Having dropped out of UNRWA school, Ibrahim enrolled in KinderUSA funded school, Social Development Center, in Ein el-Hilweh camp. After 2 years, Ibrahim sought to pursue a vocational degree in order to begin working and making money to assist his family who survive on monthly stipends received from the refugee program.
After one year, Ibrahim completed the certification for General Electricity and once he completes the remaining term of his education, he can start working as an apprentice with the goal of becoming a journeyman and having his own business one day.
