Teach For Lebanon: End of year updates

Thanks to our supporters altruistic contributions, who once again believed in Teach For Lebanon (TFL) and gave our country’s most qualified youth a chance to act upon their good will, leadership drive, and initiative in order to dismantle the obstacles set in the face of quality education and employment opportunities, and to bring joy, prosperity and wellness to the community they serve devotedly, TFL was capable to strive, one again, at elevating the quality of education in Lebanon for the betterment of our country and for the future of our children, regardless of their demographics, religion and nationalities.

It is through the assistance of TFL's supporters that building youth leadership while impacting the lives of hundreds of underprivileged students in needy schools all over our beloved Lebanon was one again possible.

This year, Cohort 11 (2019-2021) welcomed 16 new Fellow teachers who joined their 18 colleagues from Cohort 10 (2018-2020). Although TFL aimed to recruit a larger number of Fellows, the available budget was not enough to compensate for the incurred expenses. Political instability coupled with the refugee crisis generated new challenges for non-profit organizations in Lebanon. The already limited number of corporates and foundations in Lebanon are overly solicited limiting their donation capacity. Before this situation arose, Teach For Lebanon was approaching an inflection point, scaling our educational efforts throughout the country while ensuring an adequate response to the educational needs of an increasing number of refugee children coming from neighboring countries.

Our 34 Fellows were placed in 25 different schools that cater to low income communities; schools that have high dropout rates, schools that serve a high percentage of illiterate parents, and schools that are marginalized and under-resourced. TFL targets communities which host low-income families including vulnerable Lebanese and refugees. During the past year, TFL also served in delinquent institutions and orphanages throughout the region. In turn, Teach For Lebanon is committed to empowering Fellows to become effective and responsible citizens who are familiar with the current social, environmental and global problems and encourage them to adopt collective leadership to find solutions.

TFL prepares Fellows to become lifelong advocates working to improve the learning environment in Lebanon.  This year as well, Fellows were committed not only to provide quality education to their students but also to teach them core values such as trust, integrity, honesty, tolerance and how to behave responsibly and ethically; no violence, gender equality, the importance of hard work and diligence, respecting other people’s beliefs and opinions, and so forth. Fellows also worked on extracurricular programming (ECA) and community engagement initiatives to raise awareness among the students, parents and school communities about various social issues such as Gender Based Violence, early marriage, protection and human rights.

So far, TFL has employed 149 Fellows who have impacted the lives of over 31,100 disadvantaged children in 56 different schools throughout the country. This has been accomplished through our various partnerships with public and private sectors, from local and international cooperates and foundations as well as many individual supporters. 

TFL looks forward to ensuring that all children in Lebanon, regardless of socioeconomic background, have access to a quality education. Our joint efforts towards improving access to quality education while increasing the profile of teaching are believed to be key to a more equitable Lebanon.
