THE ROAD TO PEACE IS THROUGH THE EDUCATION OF CHILDREN
I am really convinced that the road to peace goes through the education of children and the opportunity to give every child the right to achieve his full potential. It is by accepting our own difficulties and those of others, by giving everyone the chance to deal the best way they can, with these difficulties, thanks to sustainable education, that we give our children the tools they need to help them navigate through life with clarity… The power doesn’t lie in the flawlessness or in the absence of difficulties, but in a clear and generous gaze focused on ourselves and the others.

Starting in 2002, CLES has been organizing free annual training sessions for hundreds of teachers from public and private schools. These training sessions cover different themes related to speciﬁc learning difﬁculties and are given by a Belgian-Lebanese multidisciplinary team specialized in the study of specific learning disabilities. The main goal of the training sessions is to enable teachers to detect specific learning disabilities among students and direct them to institutions that can provide adequate assistance.
