Lebanese woman university graduate joins street cleaning team


In a bold move, Lebanese Lea Nurpetlian, decided to be the first woman to join the cleaning workers team at “Ramco” cleaning company. With her motto, ‘El Sheghel mish 3eib’ (no shame in work), Lea defied unemployment and the economic collapse in Lebanon and chose this occupation as a means of subsistence instead of sitting idly at home. Lea, who holds 2 university degrees in accounting and tourism, could not find a job in her field, and hence set to challenge the way Lebanese people think of street cleaners or how they discard their own trash.
