Take a virtual field trip to Lebanon to meet Syrian students you’ve supported by making pinwheels for the Students Rebuild Healing Classrooms Challenge!
This live webcast features Syrian students and educators who are part of the International Rescue Committee’s (IRC) Healing Classrooms program. They’ll be meeting with American students who have participated in the Healing Classrooms Challenge. Ahmed Shihab-Eldin, an Emmy-nominated journalist and Correspondent/Producer for VICE on HBO, will moderate the conversation. RSVP now to watch and join the conversation and by sending questions in real time via the Chat feature.
The Healing Classrooms Challenge is a partnership of the Bezos Family Foundation, the IRC and Global Nomads Group (GNG). Through the Challenge, the Bezos Family Foundation is matching your pinwheels with up to $400K in funding to support the IRC’s Healing Classrooms program. The program helps provide secure and nurturing learning environments to Syrian youth who now live in Lebanon and Iraq.
