The fifth issue of the HOPES-LEB e-newsletter is now available

Dear partners, friends and colleagues,

We are pleased to share with you the fifth issue of our HOPES-LEB e-newsletter 

Beside an update on our activities and achievements, you will read our interview with Ms. Orla Colclough of the Delegation of the European Union to Lebanon about the objectives and lessons learned of the Madad Fund and her take on how the Madad Fund has supported access to further education opportunities in Lebanon. 

Another article depicts a series of interviews with four partner institutions, the Center for Civic Engagement and Community Service (CCECS) of the American University of Beirut (AUB), CIS College, the Kayrawan Institute (KI) and Atlas English providing HOPES-LEB short courses scholarships. 

In the « Where are they now? » series of portraits dedicated to the alumni of the HOPES and HOPES-LEB projects, we learn about the impact the scholarship had on the individual development of Zeina and Ali, and we follow them on their paths of life after graduation.

We hope you will enjoy reading these articles as much as we enjoyed preparing and writing them. As always, we thank you for being part of our HOPES-LEB community!  

Best Regards,
