Beth Aleph education center for the migrant's children organized an end of year ceremony for it’s students on Monday June 3rd. The Ceremony included 137 children from more than 10 different nationalities who performed and danced on multinational songs. 40 of these students have completed KG2.
Nadine Labaki, being one of the prominent names who have endorsed the causes to fight for domestic workers’ rights in Lebanon, joined the ceremony in solidarity with Caritas Lebanon’s migrant program’s objective. This spirit doesn’t come unexpectedly as the cooperation between the two roots back to Nadine Labaki’s Oscar nominated movie, Caparnaum where Caritas have helped in acess of location, information and cases to reflect the accurate realities of migrant workers.
The movie highlighted the abuses migrant worker’s encounter such as, papers confiscation, no freedom of movement, difficulty of communication, non-payment of salaries, physical and moral abuse who Caritas Lebanon have always made one of its ultimate cause.
Bet Aleph is an education center established in 2010 by Caritas Lebanon in partnership with Le Bureau Social des Pères Lazaristes for the protection of the children of migrant workers through various educational, social, psychological and recreational services funded by Caritas Austria – Salzburg.
