Schools in Beirut
We support the following school in Bourj Hammoud, a town in the north-east of Beirut:
• Armenian Ev. Sec. School of Bourj Hammoud, for students aged 3 – 16 years (Kindergarten, Elementary & Intermediate sections)
In spring 2019 the decision was taken to merge the Shamlian School, founded in 1930, and Torosian School, founded in 1951, both situated in Bourj Hammoud and only a few hundred meters apart, because of financial and political reasons.
With the beginning of the academic year 2019-2020 (Sep 24, 2019) the school is known as Armenian Ev. Sec. School of Bourj Hammoud.
The school accepts Syrian refugees. Refugees, however, often cannot afford the school fees.
