Makhzoumi Foundation participated in the Children and Youth Finance Week that is organized by Children and Youth Finance International (CYFI) in many countries of the world. It is implemented in Lebanon under the umbrella of the Higher Council for Childhood – Ministry of Social Affairs. Makhzoumi Foundation’s participation was the implementation of a competition on social entrepreneurship (a kind of work that serves a social cause and achieves material profits at the same time).
The participants included the students of all the fifth and sixth grades at Al-Alamiya School – Ras Al-Nabeh. Four participating groups won in the competition, and all participants received educational awards that were distributed on April 3, 2017, during the announcement ceremony at Al-Alamiya School. The children and young finance aims to promote awareness on their economic rights and to enable them establish business that secure their future, and to be as well social entrepreneurs.
