Planting with AUB Seeds of Hope Initiative

It is from this perspective that the admin of CLES, presided by its founder and president, Mrs. Carmen Chahine Debbane, wanted the celebration to be inspired by the hard work that started as a seed, and grew with love to encompass the whole country. Hence, they chose the noblest and oldest job in the world to represent it: agriculture and plantation in Kefraya (Bekaa). 

As a result, 20 locations were chosen to plant pine seeds on the occasion of 20 years of free and unconditional work at CLES, just as the land generously offers its fruits, and with the collaboration of the American University of Beirut (AUB), as part of the “Seeds of Hope” initiative.
