هي الآمالُ أينما حلّت، آلامُنا قَلَّت، ومعًا سنَعبُر!

When there is hope, pain fades, and united we prevail!

 Ziad Eldanaf,  Alefb teacher in Baalchmay - Lebanon

I just came back from Lebanon, and all I can say is:
!الحمدالله! ممنونين
Yes, we are grateful that people are still holding down the fort for us, teachers are still teaching,
and kids are still curious.
For me, education is key.
It is the only way forward against adversity, and towards a better, more equitable world.
I am humbled by the enthusiasm I see in our dedicated teachers, the tangible progress I notice in our #Arabic4Good students, the eagerness to learn in the eyes of our #Sawa4Good participants, and the appreciation from all the parents. 
Thank you for being part of the Alefb community!
We are working hard to meet and exceed your expectations. Stay tuned!

Our new free program #Sawa4Good has started and is going strongl! 🤝
Last month, in Lebanon, I met with 20 enthusiastic kids who were thrilled to fill out the #Sawa4Good survey, in order to be matched with a correspondent overseas. 👫👭👬 They also had lots of questions: how will we connect to each other? Who will be my penpal? What language shall we speak?
As of today, Alefb has connected over 10 students  🇱🇧  🇺🇸. They are chatting over Whatsapp or Zoom at their leisure, exchanging daily messages and sharing their dreams for a better future.
They are also discovering common interests over shared online games or competing for the best headstand, live from their living rooms 🤸😃
