Lebanon

Through the Eyes of a Child

A new community center and school in Lebanon becomes a refuge to the delight of many local children.

Remodeling a building into a community center and school would be an incredible task, but to accomplish this in just a few months might require a miracle. However, World Challenge partners in Lebanon were determined to do just that so they could receive 300 new students.

The air was filled with the smell of cut wood, drywall and paint. The lot’s previous owner had left a boat in the yard, sadly adrift in the midst of contractors, machinery and the general hubbub of a construction site.

The children were due to arrive in days.

The new center had no doors, no windows, no tiles, no heating, no running water, and no bathrooms yet. It was like someone rushing to get dressed as the doorbell rings.
