August 2015 – July 2016
Integration in the educational system is one of the many challenges faced by children with mental and physical disabilities in Lebanon, as their needs are ignored by the curriculum, the infrastructure, and the overall educational environment.
On August 1, 2015 arcenciel and CMA CGM Foundation partnered in a new project called “Encourage the development and the integration of disabled children in Beqaa region”. This project aims to increase the capacity of classrooms and improve the schools’ infrastructure to suit special-needs children in the Beqaa, one of the most unprivileged regions of Lebanon.
The project has so far redesigned 4 classrooms, fully equipped to welcome 12 disabled children, and has improved the educational methods using new educational material.
