In Lebanon, around 70% of students attend private schools. These schools play a vital social role beside an under-funded and under-resourced public education sector. The success of Lebanese education, as a whole, is tied to the success of its private schools.
Beirut Baptist School (BBS) works passionately and professionally to prepare the students in mind, body, and spirit to meet the challenges of the world around them. Today in Lebanon, challenges abound. With the continual devaluation of the Lebanese Lira, families are struggling to keep their children in school and BBS is struggling to maintain its operational costs, including paying teachers’ salaries and purchasing necessary school supplies. These costs have only been exacerbated by the transition to hybrid/online education, which has required additional investments in infrastructure and technology.
By contributing towards any of the following projects, not only are you investing in the lives of students and the Christian witness of the school, but you are investing in the future of Lebanon.
Student Scholarship Support – $1,000/student
Enable students to stay in school by subsidizing education costs for families with the greatest need, including families with children who have individual learning differences.
Technology & Support
Help BBS ensure that teachers and students have equitable and reliable access to technology, as well as all necessary training and support, as hybrid and online learning continues. The lack of access to, and affordability of, reliable technology is a significant barrier for Lebanese teachers and students as virtual learning continues.
Support our teachers and give:
- • $200 to provide a teacher training
- • $1,150 to provide a teacher with a laptop
Renovations & Repairs
Donate toward the repairs and maintenance of the school facility, which sustained significant damage from the August 4th, 2020 Beirut port explosion. Help us ensure that our students, teachers, and staff have a safe environment that is conducive to student learning and engagement.
Where Needed Most
To support the general ministry expenses of Beirut Baptist School (BBS).
