11

Teach For Lebanon (TFL) members gathered to celebrate education champions that are committed to support quality education and youth leadership in Lebanon. The event took place at Le Gray hotel in Beirut, in the presence of the organization’s esteemed board members and supporters.

 

This event was also an opportunity for donors to reiterate their support to the organization.

 

TFL relies on generous funding from its supporters to run formal and non-formal education projects that aim to address important social development issues and improve the learning outcomes of the students by expanding their horizons and visions. The projects included but were not limited to: improving English literacy and employability skills, raising awareness about gender-based violence, improving social cohesion, providing access to e-learning and promoting volunteerism among Lebanon’s youth.

 

On this occasion, Teach For Lebanon CEO Salyne El Samarani stated: “Teach for Lebanon is much more than sending educators into classrooms, it is a community working relentlessly within the ecosystem of the child to embody and teach values, take care of their well-being, promote excellence in education and empower the next generation of future Lebanese leaders”.

 

Diaa Hommos, a participant of the TFL Fellowship program added: “For a period of two years, I was a teacher at Ana Aqraa Association in Aita Al Fakhar. As a teaching Fellow, I tried to show my students that regardless of their circumstances or background, they can work on becoming leaders who think of sustainable ways to create a positive impact on their communities. After my fellowship ended, I decided to remain in the field of education and continue with Ana Aqraa and my work with the refugees”.

 

Richard Alam, a previous participant to the program also added: “Our Fellows should not only teach languages, math and history, they should also teach values like empathy, resilience and love; and they do. The uniqueness of this two-year journey is that it creates a long lasting impact on both the students and the Fellows.”

 

Over a period of ten years, TFL has employed 149 Fellows who have impacted the lives of over 30,000 disadvantaged children in 63 schools throughout the region. This has been accomplished through various partnerships with public and private sectors, from local and international cooperation’s inclusive of individual support. With a strong foundation and model which have proven successful over the years, the organization plans to scale in the future to reach a higher number of students.

 

Teach For Lebanon is a Lebanese NGO working as part of the 51-nation global education network Teach For All (TFAll). The model of Teach For Lebanon is an education innovation that focuses on youth capacity building to provide quality intervention and systemic support for students. TFL employs and trains some of Lebanon’s best graduates, “TFL Fellows”, and places them in public and free schools serving underprivileged refugee and Lebanese children. The Fellows receive on-going training and support to address educational disadvantages by providing transformational teaching that places their students on a path of academic success. Fellows also serve as community ambassadors as they combat educational and social inequalities in the schools, in the local community and throughout the region.

 

This event was made possible thanks to the generous support of the Facebook Community Leadership Program.
