  • I have organized several fundraising events for LAL, among them: two “Du bac à la scène” theater plays, a race for education, a movie screening and I have participated in the planning of various LAL workshops, events, and projects.

    I have enjoyed working “backstage”, as a fundraiser, because I understood the value of these donations. As well as fieldwork, as a planner and assistant in various workshops, which gave me the opportunity to have interactions with the children LAL is helping.

  • I joined LAL for a volunteering program through the AIESEC organization, with the aim of gaining experience in communication and media coordination. This opportunity has undoubtedly surpassed all expectations. My dream was to come to Lebanon, not only for the beauty of the country but also for its history, culture and dynamism.

    This last aspect sits at the core of what LAL is all about: an organization driven by a dedicated and passionate team, where young people share ideas to create a truly vibrant and uniquely creative environment.

    As a communication consultant, I oversaw the design of their new website, as well as the content of their social network pages.

  • Hello! My name is Sarah-Jane
    I was a LAL volunteer from January 2016 to March 2016. This 3 month were super awesome! I had an overview of the diverse work of LAL: I’ve been to schools in the Bekaa to interview the teachers about Tabshoura, supported in the movie making of the Tabshoura’s website and created content for social media and the website!

    The (super) team was composed of a dozen people working on Tabshoura kindergarten.
    I’m happy to see that in less than a year a lot of people joined the LAL’s family and contributed to the quick growth and the great work for alternative ways of learning adapted to all!
