George Clooney's foundation is planning to open seven public schools for Syrian refugee children.
The Clooney Foundation for Justice announced a new partnership with Google, HP and Unicef to provide education for more than 3,000 refugee children in Lebanon.
George and Amal Clooney said in a statement that the foundation's commitment of more than $2m towards education for Syrian refugees aims to prevent thousands of young people from becoming "a lost generation".
The couple said Syrian refugee children "have been victims of geography and circumstance" for whom formal education can make all the difference.
They established the Clooney Foundation for Justice last year to support equity in courtrooms, classrooms and communities around the world.
