A little bit of history
Our story began in 2013 in a children’s hospital. Two like-minded colleagues, Nayla (a French Literature Professor), and Nagi (a New Educational Technology Professor), met with Mireille, leading “Myschoolpulse”, a non-profit organization bringing school to hospitals. Acting on the acknowledgement that children suffering from long term illnesses found hope, joy, and normalcy in learning, they partnered to create a first draft of an e-learning platform.
To scale this initiative, Nayla and Nagi founded the Lebanese Alternative Learning (“LAL”), an EdTech NGO that strives to give every child access to free quality education, and developed further their digital learning platform, giving it the name of Tabshoura.
Since LAL believes in using technology as an equalizing force to reduce the gap between privileged and underprivileged access to education, it also focused on reaching underserved areas by innovating in offline solutions.
In 2021, LAL felt the need to support educators and launched the Lalmoudaress initiative. LALmoudaress mission is to provide educators with a library of content built with educators for educators.
Today, LAL deploys its content across Lebanon through partnerships with non-governmental organizations, community-based centers, private schools, and the public-school sectors.
