Driven by its mission to provide a brighter future to children in Lebanon, Teach A Child held its annual fundraising dinner on Friday May 29, 2015. All proceeds of this event went to funding the organization’s activities: support the education of underprivileged Lebanese children. The outdoor, disco-themed “Party under the Stars” was held at the Saint Georges Yacht Club and gathered prominent figures of the Lebanese society. The joyful atmosphere of this evening was captured through the lens of the Lebanese photographer Chafic W. Ariss. The event was an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of the NGO over the past years and thank all its friends and supporters. The emotional peak of the evening was the screening of a documentary portraying the transformational experience of a family supported by the organization. “Teach A Child” strives to ensure that every child in Lebanon is given the opportunity to learn and prosper. Today more than 960 students in 96 public schools across Lebanon are supported by the organization which covers all the expenses related their schooling. These include registration, imposed parents committee fees, books, stationary, uniforms as well as transportation. “Teach A Child” cooperates closely with governmental institutions and other NGOs and continuously lobbies for the enforcement of the law on compulsory education in Lebanon.
