Alphabetical Order supports underprivileged children at École des Sœurs de la Croix – Val Père Jacques, Bkennaya , through grants and tuition fee subsidies. Our work with the school’s students and their families facing hardship began with the start of the 2021-2022 academic year. We are conscious of the critical importance of the task that lies ahead as we work to secure grant funding for the children. In the current disastrous economic circumstances, many families of students at the school are in need of support. Our volunteers are working around the clock to raise funds to safeguard the future of these children.

In Lebanon, hundreds of thousands of schoolchildren may soon be forced to drop out of school as poverty struck families can no longer afford the cost of education following the economic collapse of their country. This is an unprecedented catastrophe in a country that until recently prided itself on the quality of its education.

We strongly believe that education is the only effective way out of poverty. It is integral as it transforms the fabric of society, promotes free will and independent thinking and brings about improved social and economic wellbeing.

 

À propos de l’école

De par sa mission de servir les personnes les plus vulnérables à l’exemple de son Fondateur le Bienheureux Père Jacques (Abouna Yaacoub), l’école Val Père Jacques n’a jamais cessé de soutenir les familles démunies.

Cependant, la crise économique qui pèse très lourd sur les parents affecte également l’école qui n’arrive plus à subvenir aux besoins des familles qui ne font qu’augmenter. Une crise aggravée par l’inflation et la dévalorisation de la Livre Libanaise, ainsi que le chômage et le manque de ressources.

La plupart de nos familles vivent actuellement sous le seuil de la pauvreté et sont dépourvues de toutes ressources. A ceci vient s’ajouter des problèmes concomitants aggravant davantage leurs situations, comme le chômage, le handicap, le divorce, et le veuvage.

L’école essaie de les soutenir autant que possible à travers des escomptes ou l’annulation même des scolarités, ainsi que l’orientation vers les ressources du milieu.

C’est dans ce sens que le projet d’aide financière pour la scolarité vise à soutenir les familles très démunies, permettant aux élèves d’achever dignement leur parcours scolaire, et aider l’école à continuer sa mission.
