Saturday November 28th, 2015 the Lebanese Organization of Studies and Trainings opened the doors to the newly renovated classrooms for the children of the town of Maarabun. This initiative is part of the small community project LOST engages in to give back to the community.
President of LOST, Ramy Lakkis, the Mayor of Maarabun, the Director and teachers of Maarabun’s official school, along with the parents and children gathered to celebrate the finished product of improved classrooms for the preschool and kindergarten students. The kids ages three to six, couldn’t sit still in their seats and were exuberant about getting to be the first to use the new equipment in the refurbished rooms.
Before LOST intervened in fixing the classroom for the toddlers, the rooms were a chaotic destruction. LOST rehabilitated the walls, painted them a friendly color, installed carpeting on the floors, and furnished the room with tables and chairs. With the new fixtures, the kids are more motivated to learn and more comfortable in the academia scene.
By implementing small community projects that greatly impact the morale of the people LOST aims to enhance the quality of life in Lebanon.
