Gift-a-Smile story 5

January 5, 2024

To start off 2024, we send you this bright smile from Ali, a pupil at the kindergarten in Wadi Zayne, Lebanon. 

The kindergarten not only supports Syrian refugee children in the community but also Lebanese children, like Ali, from poor families to encourage integration in the refugee and host community. Ali and his Syrian friends all benefit from learning from each other and sharing culture. 

Ali’s smile reminds us that educating young children is the first step to bringing peace to the world.
