Alphabetical Order supports underprivileged children at Ecole Saint Antoine de Padoue, Rayak – Hoch Hala, 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

Il est une réalité indéniable ; nous vivons actuellement une situation précaire majeure, confrontés à la pandémie du – Covid19- et à ses impacts, pas seulement sur la santé publique, mais surtout, sur la situation économique et financière. On est face à une crise affectant tout le pays mais notamment la région de la Bekaa centrale, où résident des familles modestes, vivant de leurs bas revenus agricoles et des carrières de pierres.
Face à la dévaluation monétaire, ces familles se trouvent prises au piège de la pauvreté, et peinent à subvenir à leurs besoins de base, vivant sous le seuil de la pauvreté. Par sens de responsabilité, nous, en qualité de directrice et corps administratif de l’Ecole Saint Antoine de Padoue des Sœurs Maronites de la Sainte Famille – Hoch Hala – Rayak, et face aux effets dramatiques sur les conditions de vie de ces communautés, pourrait-on persister en tant qu’institution : aurait-on la capacité de payer les salaires des enseignants et employés, alors que les parents sont dans l’incapacité de payer les frais de scolarité de l’année précédente 2020-2021, eux inscrits pour l’année scolaire 2021-2022 ?
Sans oublier toutefois les fausses promesses du Ministère de l’Education et de l’Enseignement Supérieur, la corruption flagrante des responsables, et celle dans les administrations publiques. Par conséquent, nous nous trouvons sous la charge des dettes cumulées et dans l’impuissance de payer salaires et dus.
Et sur ce, et face à cette réalité amère, nous espérons de votre part une aide financière, permettant de poursuivre notre parcours, et de surmonter la crise en assumant nos responsabilités et nos devoirs envers ces familles et le personnel éducatif.
Considérant votre esprit généreux, nous comptons sur vos subventions, afin de cultiver, main dans la main, le sentiment d’enracinement et l’intégration de ces familles à leur terre natale.
