LASeR is constantly working to help fund the education of university students who cannot afford education anymore due to the economic situation
How do we help students?
Usually, the City fund program students, are granted scholarships and zero-interest loans that are paid back through affordable monthly installments. Students fill in their applications, the amount needed for either Tuition fees or living fees (if they are applying for studies outside of Lebanon).
This project has served more than a thousand students, allowing them to pursue their dreams. Educated young citizens can only mean a better Lebanon, a way out of this mess!
Why the City Fund program?
The deteriorating economic situation, COVID-19 and the lockdown, and the deteriorating value of the Lebanese pound versus the US dollar. While a salary in Lebanese pounds would be equal to 1,000$ before the crises, now it makes around 100 $ or even less.
Parents are finding it more and difficult to pay back the loans, especially when loans are in US dollars ( Students who live outside Lebanon receive their loans in US dollars ).
This is the call to help all parents. No one should be faced with the decision of stopping his education for financial reasons.
We, as an organization, are committed to receiving repayment of the loans according to the old rate and that’s what we should do to support families. However, this is putting the organization under tremendous financial stress. Without your help , we wouldn’t be able to compensate the loss , and thus wouldn’t be able to further support students on the coming fall.
Please support us in our mission! We are calling out on our community inside and especially outside of Lebanon! Every cent helps now!
