Jan 25,2024

On January 23rd, 2024, Access students at Damour Public School were visited by U.S. Embassy representatives and by Access staff from Teach For Lebanon. Among them, was the U.S. Embassy’s English Language Coordinator/Public Diplomacy, Ms. Edith Bitar.

The atmosphere was filled with excitement as the students showcased their remarkable capabilities through their conceptual project of a robot purposed to help people in the community, particularly those with disabilities. This encounter not only highlighted the incredible potential within these young minds but also demonstrated the significance of promoting innovation and empathy within the educational context.

Furthermore, on January 25, 2024, Access students at Choueifat Public School welcomed a visit by guests from the U.S. Embassy and Access staff from TeachForLebanon. Ms. Edith Bitar, the U.S. Embassy’s English Language Coordinator/Public Diplomacy, joined the students in a dynamic ‘Giving Advice’ activity led by their Access teacher, Ms. Sarah Timani. The students were all excited as they actively role-played in their proudly-acquired English the dialogues that they creatively designed, based on various given scenarios and extending to accepting or rejecting advice while using specific expressions.

Reflecting on their journey in the Access Program, one student shared: “If I want to describe my Access journey in one word, it would be ‘Amazing.’” 

The overall students’ testimonials reflected delight in the Program’s instructional and personal development content, as well as in its events where they also appreciate getting to make friends from other regions of Lebanon, with their experience summed up as “We are getting very informative knowledge.”
