Inauguration of the “LIMES” Program at the Beddawi Refugee Camp – 29 June 2018


Last week saw the beginning of a new important activity by the Società Dante Alighieri Lebanon.

In collaboration with Terre Des Hommes Italia, the scouts of the Al Qadisyeh Group, and the support of the central branch of Società Dante Alighieri, on Monday 25 June the “LIMES” program began its activities. The aim of this program is to provide scholastic support to around 50 children from the Palestinian Refugee Camp of Beddawi. Through the teaching of Italian as a foreigner language and the provision of additional care and attention, “LIMES” has the objective to facilitate the improvement of the overall academic results of the children, while also spreading knowledge and awareness about Italy, its language and its culture.

On Friday 29 June the social centre of the scouts hosted the event of the official inauguration of the program. Authorities from the camp, representatives of Terre Des Hommes Italia and of Società Dante Alighieri Lebanon, children and parents all gathered to celebrate the launch of the program’s activities. Dr. Alessandro Masi, Secretary General of the Società Dante Alighieri, also attended the event as part of its visit to Lebanon.

We are happy to present to you a gallery of pictures from the event. More will be added in the forthcoming days.
