On Thursday March 9, 2017 the School of Education Tripoli Campus was delighted to have as their guest speakers Ms. Yara Kborsi, Country Director of ETI and Mr. Ziad Azar, Program Manager of ETI in North Lebanon.
ETI, Empowerment Through Integration, is a US – certified nonprofit organization that focuses on the integration of blind youth into society.
Ms. Kborsi discussed the necessities of creating an educational environment that integrates the requirements of children with specials needs, so as to live a normal life and have a sense of belonging within the community. The profoundly heart filling testimonial was an inspiration to students as they appreciated the values and beliefs she projected to the wider audience.
Mr. Azar presented the ETI’s mission, and discussed the potential opportunities for students interested in volunteering for upcoming projects or benefiting from summer internships.
To have a vision is to be able to see the human thought of sharing knowledge and empowering humanity.
