Grade 7 B students and their teacher Ms. Tala Halabi worked hard throughout the spring semester 2019 on the iEARN project “Finding Solutions to Hunger”. The project is aligned with the second UN Sustainable Development Goal, to end hunger, achieve food security and improve nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture.

iEARN is a non-profit organization consisting of over 30,000 schools and youth organizations in more than 140 countries. iEARN empowers teachers and young people from around the world to collaborate on projects using online platforms communication technologies. 

Through this project, Ahliah students were communicating with students from all over the world mostly Taiwan, Japan, Pakistan, USA-NY, Georgia, Morocco, Qatar, Senegal, Kenya and Brazil. Students learned about the root causes of hunger in the world and ways to take significant actions to build a fairer and more sustainable world. Students showed great commitment and enthusiasm throughout their work. They created documentaries as part of the Zero Hunger Awareness campaign and raised money through different activities to donate to four bakeries as an agreement to provide freshly baked goods to the needy people in the neighborhood. Students also collaborated and designed an action plan around each bakery and its neighborhood. 

Ms. Mary Brownell, the project facilitator, commended Ahliah studentsfor theirwork and achievement and expressed her intention to share their work with the “Kids Can Make a Difference”program, which is an extension of the project with its own website. Ahliah is one of only two schools from Lebanon represented in this program. 

Congratulations to all Grade 7 students and Ms. Tala Halabi for the valuable achievement on the iEARN online project.
