Support Lebanon in Difficult Times
A FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN TO HELP NEEDY STUDENTS IN LEBANON
THE MARONITE FOUNDATION IN THE WORLD (Canada Chapter) IN PARTNERSHIP WITH INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN FOUNDATION (ICF-SSHD)
(Donations entitle Canadian residents to tax credits)
Lebanon’s empty schools bode long-term damage from crisis
No matter the amount, your donation will make a difference
You are kindly asked to spread the campaign to your connections.
Given the economic and financial crisis that Lebanon is going through, and the drastic devaluation of the Lebanese pound, which affects the purchasing power of the majority of families whose average monthly family income does not exceed $100 USD.
Failure to pay students’ tuition fees leaves schools unable to have the funds necessary for their operation and therefore threatened with closure.
The objective of this event, organized and managed by the Maronite Canada Foundation, is to raise funds to help students from poor families pay their tuition fees.
The money will be transferred directly to schools to cover part of the tuition fees of these students. All donation funds entering ICF bank accounts, either directly or through the Maronite Canada Foundation, entitle Canadian residents to tax receipts.
Your contribution will make a huge difference in the survival of schools in Lebanon.

Education under Threat:
Lebanon needs to urgently embark on a comprehensive reform agenda that puts students at the center of the education sector and prioritizes quality of education for all, according to a new World Bank report released today. Low levels of learning and skills mismatch in the job market have put the future of generations of Lebanese children at risk and imply a critical need for more and better targeted investments in the sector.
