  • My name is Rym El Moussaoui, I have a B.A. in Language and Communications Sciences: Language Acquisition Engineering and currently pursuing my Masters’ in Curriculum and Educational Management.

    I chose to volunteer at LAL because I am looking for a meaningful volunteer opportunity that ties in with my career objectives – I am very interested in education especially working with students from vulnerable backgrounds. I have worked for several years in INGO’s in education projects made in response to the Syrian crisis. Being able to help others is the kind of work that I am passionate about especially where I can utilize my skills to make a positive impact in the lives of others.

  • I am an ambitious motivated university student looking to help people, leverage my communication skills and meet new people. I would love to be part of your organization in order to provide help for people in need. I had two experiences in volunteering; I taught a girl French and went to Smile Resto with Bassma Association, and I used to volunteer in the Children Cancer Center. I also worked at a summer camp and took care of kids aged between 3 and 6 years old (activities inlcude beach activities, painting, games…)

  • I am a Lebanese student studying abroad. I love helping others and doing community-work. I am ambitious and a quick-learner. I heard about your organization and I am eager to work with you helping underprivileged kids in Lebanon getting their education. We need to make sure that the coming generations are well educated in order to help Lebanon get through actual and upcoming challenges.

  • My name is Manon Fakhoury, I’m a social science graduate from Paris Dauphine. LAL gave me the chance to work with them as an intern for the summer.

    The current challenges faced by our societies, such as the environmental problems, war, terrorism, the refugee crisis, or the rise of populism, are becoming more complex every day. Being aware of these issues leaves me no choice but to commit to trying my best solving them, in order to make a difference.

    I’ve always wanted to dedicate my life to working with NGOs. I believe that having the opportunity to do so in my home country, surrounded by a very motivated and welcoming team will allow me to learn and grow both personally and professionally.

  • Hi, my name is Samira Trawi I am 18 years old and I live in Beirut. I studied at Laure Moghayzel Official School for Girls in Ashrafiyeh. I would like to study Business Administration at the Lebanese University. Meanwhile I am helping the NGO Lebanese Alternative Learning by proofreading their Arabic Activities Contents and I will be doing an extracurricular activity about Women’s Rights in Lebanon and the Arab Countries.

  • I’m an undergraduate student majoring in Elementary Education at AUB. This summer, I have to complete around 60 hours internship in an NGO. I heard about LAL from my friends and from the NGO fair that took place last spring at AUB. I’m very glad to have the opportunity to volunteer with you, LAL meets my interests in helping a wide range of people and in developing the educational system in our country.
    I hope that my contribution will make a difference.

  • I came to the realization that being called a nerd for answering most of the questions people asked me didn’t make me feel bad at all. On the contrary, it made me happy, eager to watch more documentaries and read books outside my major. In some debates, people would approach and start talking to me about things that I wouldn’t have imagined knowing of if it weren’t for my intense curiosity to understand the world. And all of this thirst to engulf information and link beautiful facts about how things operate and how matter interacts with one another came from books. So, I understand the importance of showing people knowledge through books, movies or activities. I understand that pictures in books aren’t bad at all. They tickle the brain and make sure it doesn’t forget them. So to speak, I would love to be part of something that would allow me to share my knowledge and learn from people so we’d all know the right answers to the questions and be able to ask the right questions about the world. Most importantly, I’d love to reach out to kids and people who aren’t as privileged as I was to attain books for their questions.

  • When I read about this volunteering opportunity, it really clicked for me. The need for more interactive learning in public schools is huge and this is coming from a student who graduated from one. I am very interested in content development in biology because I’m very passionate about it and want the youth to see how beautiful it is. On the long term, this kind of education will help them aspire to build unconventional careers in research and science. I would also love to do activities with children when available. I can’t wait to start working on this!

  • Don’t let school get in the way of your education.

    I recently graduated from Duke University with a B.A. in Global Cultural Studies, Education, and Documentary studies. Growing up with a strictly scientific and engineering formation, I was quickly disillusioned with corporate modes of social change. After working with public schools on incorporating technology into education, I realized that change starts from within people, rather than the machines they used.
    I now have dedicated my life to providing open access education for all, and Lebanese Alternative Learning is at the cutting edge of this work in Lebanon.

    Mohamad Chamas
  • Because helping others is the best thing I love to do, I decided to join LAL. The idea of this ngo attracted me from the word go since i used to study alone without any help and faced many difficulties.Therefore, i liked the way LAL simplifies things for both students and teachers. I’m more than happy to be part of this amazing team working on the geology & chemistry parts which are related to my Petroleum Studies in AUB.

    I hope my contribution will make a difference.
