YP Lebanon Raises Over $9,000 for AGBU Schools in Lebanon

The  AGBU Young Professionals of Lebanon (YP Lebanon) recently organized a movie premiere to fundraise for AGBU schools in Lebanon:  the Levon G. Nazarian Elementary School, Boghos K. Garmirian Elementary School and the Tarouhy-Hovagimian Intermediate School. More than 700 participants supported the initiative to enhance academic activities and continue the mission of the AGBU Lebanon Education Committee.

The event raised over $9,000 and marked an accomplishment in the work of YP Lebanon: “The fundraiser was possibly the most successful in terms of the number of attendees, the amount of money raised and, most importantly, the number of Armenian students who will be helped through our donation to local schools,” said Sara Guerbidjian, YP Lebanon communication officer. “We are looking forward to many more successful events in the future in order to help more people in the Armenian community.”

Following the event, YP members met with Ara Vassilian, the principal of the AGBU schools in Lebanon and assessed areas of need to improve academic and recreational activities for Armenian students. “We are delighted to continue our ongoing support to the AGBU schools. As young professionals, we believe education is essential in shaping a strong Lebanese Armenian community. Our aim is to maintain a strong relationship with youth and support their access to quality education,” said Sarine Karajerjian, YP Lebanon coordinator.
