Alphabetical Order supports underprivileged children at Ecole Notre-Dame de la Paix in Dora, 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 be forced to drop out of school as poverty struck families can no longer afford the cost of education following the economic collapse of the 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.

About the school

L’école Notre Dame de la Paix, des Sœurs Basiliennes Chouerites, fondée en 1952, accueille environ 400 élèves pour l’année scolaire 2021-2022. Cette population d’élèves sont issus de milieux sociaux défavorisés dont les familles sont les premières victimes de la crise économique profonde et sans précédent que subit le Liban. L’environnement de l’école est de nature populaire. La majorité de nos familles, modestes par définition, ne paient pas ou paient partiellement les frais de scolarité de l’école. Cela, alors que l’école leur offre des facilités de paiement en échelonnant les frais de scolarité ou en leur accordant des réductions.
La situation s’est aggravée ces dernières années quand beaucoup de petits commerces et de petites entreprises ont fermé leurs portes du fait de la crise économique, ce qui a entraîné la mise au chômage d’un certain nombre de parents de notre école, ceux-ci étant pour la plupart ouvriers, employés ou commerçants.
Venant s’ajouter à cette situation déjà critique, l’explosion du port de Beyrouth le 4 août 2020 qui a causé des dégâts énormes dans notre école. Aucun organisme officiel ne nous a aidés financièrement dans les travaux de réparation. Tout cela a mis l’école dans une situation très difficile sur le plan économique.
