" Dwelling in political and economic crisis, the Lebanese are in desperate need of help, but the only long-term solution they can possibly get is proper access to education.
The Millennium Fellowship is granting me the opportunity to help improve society, in a country that needs it most and in a way that properly responds to the current problems while having the chance to meet like minded people along the way. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Darbak
Darbak is an independent student led initiative that the Millennium Fellows of the St. Joseph University plan to lead throughout the Felllowship program period with an estemated outreach of 300 to 400 people (depending on the rapidly degrading situation in lebanon which will hopefully not interfere). Our aim is to provide orientation for carreers, universities and scholarships available to lebanese students seeing as with the lack of ressources abd current political climate they often feel trapped in their current situations and do not see the possibility to access higher quality education because of the lack means outside of Beirut (the capital) and its suburbs.
