Together for Lebanon: First Campaign

On August 4, 2020, a twin explosion destroyed the port of the Lebanese capital and deeply affected the eastern districts of the city. Of unprecedented magnitude, the disaster caused the death of nearly 200 people and left thousands injured and nearly 300,000 Lebanese homeless.
This drama worsened an already very difficult economic, social and political situation which resulted in the fall of the purchasing power of the Lebanese pound by more than 80% and the sharp rise in unemployment, forcing more than half of the country to live below the poverty line. The Covid-19 pandemic did not help...
Unprecedented financial crisis, blockage of institutions, explosion of poverty...

Faced with this delicate situation, T.I.E.S. launched the "Together for Lebanon" initiative with the aim of :
- financially support families affected by the explosion,
- provide food aid,
- animate activities for the most vulnerable children.


Thanks to the generosity of the people interested in this initiative and thanks to the volunteers who supported us on the ground, T.I.E.S was able to add a small stone to the rebuilding to rebuild the capital Beirut.

The contribution of parents to the construction of an inclusive society

T.I.E.S has launched an awareness campaign entitled "The contribution of parents to the construction of an inclusive society" aimed at parents, which is intended to:
  • change representations and overcome parents' prejudices towards children with special needs (SEN),
  • facilitate the social integration of SEN into the family and society,
  • become aware of the existence of the many interventions that enable parents to overcome obstacles and difficulties and promote their child's social and academic success,
  • raise awareness about the rights of people with SEN in Lebanon and the steps to follow to send their child to school in the best conditions,
  • talk about the different types of invisible special needs that are misunderstood and not identified by parents and society,
  • view testimonials from young people with special needs who have made a success of their lives thanks to the support of their parents.

The first meeting was held in Basloukit, a village in Zgharta district in the northern Governorate of Lebanon, on 17 August 2019 in the presence of parents and people concerned by the theme.

"You've been making us happy for 11 years now! When you were 4, we were told you were autistic! We're moving forward, we're trying hard, and we'll always keep doing our best! You are the way you are and I wouldn’t have it any other way! I love you as you are with your peculiar ways, your language that isn’t always adapted! I love you with your autism which is another form of intelligence! You are my life! My daughter! My struggle!" (Mum of Lynn).

"Parental love is the condition for the existence, growth and development of the child. […]. It is from the affection he receives, that he perceives himself as kind and that he will develop his skills" (Ringler, 2009).

Promoting inclusive education through sport

“Life is about taking risks, working through change and having the courage to live your potential. Hiding may not be as painful, but it's not as much fun” (Silken Laumann, olympic gold medalist).
