LAL had the pleasure of partaking in the SUFA project inauguration event that took place this Monday in Moallaqah public school in Zahle. The event was in the presence of the German Ambassador, Andreas Kindl, and the regional director of DOPS.
Through its partnership with GIZ on behalf of BMZ, LAL has not only scaled Tabshoura digital school content but specifically addressed the limited access of students to the internet, due to frequent power cuts and the worsening cash crisis by developing an offline App, the ‘Tabshoura App’ that allows children to download lesson units and use them offline.
Our engagement with the TheirWorld Innovation Award commenced with a clear and powerful objective: to expand our innovative initiatives and reach a broader audience of children and youth.
We live in an era of technology and innovation. These two fields are ever growing and very often interrelated. The World Summit Awards (WSA) is an initiative that sheds light on the digital innovations that have positive societal impacts. Every year, WSA rewards 40 initiatives from all over the world in 8 diverse categories.
“Tabshoura already has a digitized Kindergarten program,” Fahed explained, and children using it learned twice as much as children that didn’t. LAL wants to teach children that are often left to themselves necessary competencies that will help them in life and in learning such as analysis, creativity, and autonomy.
Our team made up of Patrick Habib and Andrea Fahed pitched the EdTech solution Tabshoura Tiny Thinkers in a Box at MIT Solve in New York on the 22nd of September!
MIT Solve is an MIT Initiative that fosters tech companies looking to pilot, scale and implement their tech solutions for leading societal issues.
