Digital skills training for Syrians & Lebanese in Beqaa


The first unit of Syrian refugees and vulnerable host communities in the Beqaa completed a training session on digital skills through a partnership between the American University of Beirut (AUB) and the World Food Program (WFP). The two-month ‘teaching digital skills through vocational training’ course offered 70 students six weeks of intensive coaching and two weeks of intensive English. The course will be followed by a six-week advanced project-based learning and virtual internship for returning students. On the program, WFP country director, Dominik Heinrich, said it is a project that benefits students and local economies and extensively contributes to a Zero Hunger world, not only in Lebanon, but across the region. Similarly, the director of AUB’s Agricultural Research and Education Center (AREC), Mustafa Haidar, pointed out that the capacity building program will enable beneficiaries to find jobs online by ensuring they have access to a decent livelihood and economic prospects.
