Turning Lemons into Laymonada

It's been one long month! And we are still staying home, enjoying time with the family, navigating health, juggling work, and chores. We go through anxiety, panic, and then exasperation, resignation. We experience gratitude, self awareness, empathy... We go back to fundamentals.
Yes, we are resilient! We are resilient as human being and more so, as survivors of uprooting, exile, forced immigration. How do we do it?
We take it one day at a time, building on our core values, drawing on our education and culture to make the best lemonade from the lemons life has given us.
I am so thankful to the people who are relentlessly and graciously supporting Alefb on the communication and strategic side: Albert Doumar and Caroline Longuet. Thanks to all the teachers newly hired and long timers, much appreciation to all the parents who turn challenges into opportunities and give the gift of learning to their kids.
Last but not least, I want to express gratitude and respect to all the children who made huge leaps in maturity in just a few weeks, and who are the heroes of tomorrow. 
You will find below a few examples that are a testament to the involvement of this wonderful community in our #Arabic4good initiative.
Yalla, join us -- there is a place for everyone!

I wish you to stay well, and do good!
Together we will go further and be stronger, inshallah ...
