Following the success of its first edition last year, baccalaureate students from schools across Beirut are coming together again to offer their theatrical performance of ‘Du Bac a la Scene – 2nd edition’. All proceeds of this event go to support the Lebanese Alternative Learning (LAL) project, Tabshoura, a non-profit platform providing free, accessible & trilingual e-learning tools based on the Lebanese educational curriculum for students at risk of dropping out because they follow long medical treatment or live in precarious communities.
The young actors come from L’Athénée de Beyrouth, Grand Lycée Franco-Libanaise, Lycée Verdun, Lycée Abdel Kader, Carmel Saint Joseph and Collége Protestant Franҫais. The performance will take place for two nights, June 23rd & 24th, at Gemmayze Theatre, at 9:00 PM.
Also participating to support Tabshoura and Lebanese Alternative Learning are journalist Médéa Azouri and musician Ramy Tibi.
“Our idea is that the financing of this e-learning site be supported by young people, for young people. We encourage young talents and artistic activities to be undertaken for the benefit of providing education for others,” says Nayla Zreik Fahed, founder and president of Lebanese Alternative Learning, LAL.
LAL collaborates with educational associations by proposing and implementing cultural and educational activities that help to develop a sense of social engagement among the youth. LAL overcomes socio-economic barriers and cultural difference to create a positive impact. It allows participating schools and students to work together and to invest their talents for the greater good, enabling the development and provision of e-learning for underprivileged children and youth across the country.
