  • Empower Underprivileged Kids in Lebanon with Digital Skills

    by Teach For Lebanon - Jul 27,2021
     ~10% (500 out of 5000) of our student beneficiaries don't own devices with which to access online learning. This revealed itself as a problem most acutely when COVID-19 forced Lebanese schools to shut their doors and students without the means to attend online classes were left stranded. But even without the backdrop of the pandemic, digital skills are essential in order to navigate the modern world. Students should be taught these skills in school, and they should be able to hone them at home.

  • Humanitarian Leadership Conference

    by Teach For Lebanon - May 04,2021
    We’re pleased and proud to announce that our CEO, Salyne El Samarani, has participated in the 2021 iteration of the Humanitarian Leadership Conference by the Centre for Humanitarian Leadership. The conference took place virtually over two days (04/28 – 04/29). Salyne spoke on a panel entitled “Educators as first responders: how locally-led humanitarian action is key to ensuring that children aren’t left behind.” She was joined by Clarissa Delgado, CEO and co-founder of Teach For the Philippines; Larissa Hovannisian, founder and CEO of Teach For Armenia; and Dr. Randa Grob-Zakhary, CEO and founder of Insights for Education. 

    Here are a few quotes by Salyne El Samarani from her panel discussion:

    "In Lebanon, we’ve been in emergency-mode for more than 10 years. In such protracted contexts, mental health support in schools is essential. This is why it’s so critical to invest in education during a crisis, so communities can cling to the future with the hope of education."

    "The international community needs to build the capacity of local NGOs, so that we can achieve sustainable impact and development. Donors need to rethink their expectations and processes to allow local organisations to operate"

  • Student Art Competition

    by Teach For Lebanon - May 17,2021
    In December, Teach For Lebanon launched a student art competition in two schools, Sahagian College and Dr. Wadih El Samad school. The aim was to produce artwork on the theme of rebuilding Lebanon “with will and hope,” with an emphasis on the values of justice, transparency, and equality. The 61 student participants were free to create art, poetry, music, or videos to convey their vision of a better Lebanon.

    A committee composed of Lebanese artists George Khabbaz and Gina Halik, journalist and producer Dalal Mawad, and TFL alumnus and friend Karim Chebli evaluated the projects. In mid February 2021, Teach for Lebanon hosted a virtual meeting to discuss the submissions and pick the winners based on a set of criteria taking into account age, skill, creativity, etc.
