As Aie Serve turns 10 this month, it is prime time for us to leverage our experience, knowledge and network in actively helping the organization chart its path to serve the community for the coming decade.
In this context, and as we’re celebrating 10 years of service to our community, and the youth in specific, we would like to invite you to join us in the networking cocktail that we’re hosting on Saturday, February 25th from 6pm till 9pm at the Crowne Plaza Hotel 21st floor in Hamra.
During our cocktail we’ll be sharing with you the story of growth and evolution of this young spirited NGO, celebrating some achievements of the past year and showcasing what we have in mind for the coming decade.
As this event offers limited seats and is completely free of charge, we kindly request you to confirm your presence with us the soonest (preferably before February 18) so that we can plan for the logistics accordingly.
On the behalf of the Aie Serve team, we’ll be honored to have you with us and look forward to meet, network and celebrate!
With the aim of empowering youth in rural areas, and in line with the Net-Med Youth project (UNESCO project funded by EU), UNESCO-Beirut, in collaboration with Aie Serve, conducted a series of trainings on Media and Information Literacy (MIL) to Lebanese and Syrian youths in three different governorates: North (Akkar), Beqaa (Kfarzabad) and South (Saida). The NGOs functioning in these areas participated in this initiative specifically in communicating the training information to youths in their communities, as based on the Arabic MIL booklet which was developed for this training project.
A total of 45 young women and men aged 18-25 years from these 3 rural areas of Lebanon have enhanced their skills in MIL, as part of this interactive workshop training series, based on this booklet which will be publicly disseminated in early 2017.
The overall training atmosphere was positive, due to the fact that it was targeting youth with trainers that were close to their age and able to communicate their message and content in a simple and interactive way. Trainees evaluations included comments such as “They loved the activities…The methodology was different than other trainings that they’ve attended…They enjoyed the day…They learned interesting and practical information…etc”. Trainers were satisfied by the results of the day, motivated by the initiative, and emphasized on elaborating possible ideas that the youth can implement or lead on in the future.
Such an initiative reaching out to youths in the rural areas are majorly empowering and motivating, giving hope to the new generation that is not able to benefit from the opportunities available in the cities. This project was rewarding to its implementers as much as its beneficiaries and it would be great to have it culminate in a youth forum and some events that could allow the participants to get more exposed and exchange ideas.
