Books for Lebanon

A Peacemaking Project by Charlie P.

What is the injustice we are solving?

On a recent trip to Abu Dhabi, I met a wonderful educator who taught in Lebanon. She explained to me that her school has so many students that it has to open in two shifts and that there were little to no resources to Teach with. As a teacher of English in the UK I would like to enroll my students into sending some of their books over to this school in Lebanon. We are privileged to have a wealth of resources and it is right that we share them with those who are in need of them. I need to: launch this project with the 2000 pupils in my school, collect the books, raise the funds to send them to Lebanon and then get them sent over.

Thanks for sharing your project. It is great to see your motivation after meeting the educator in Abu Dhabi. We are here to help so let us know if you have any questions as you go through the different steps of your journey.

Hi Charlie! This sounds like an amazing project. I love your story of compassion.

We specifically provide support (mentors, funding, etc) to youth-led projects (youth being anyone under 25). So if you have young people at your school who are taking a leadership role on this project, or are under 25 yourself, we can help connect you with those resources.

And no matter what, we are in your corner!
