SDG 2.3.2: IUL provides interventions to target hunger among students and staff

Whereas the Lebanese National Committee for UNESCO is interested in inviting universities to establish UNESCO clubs that aim to spread the principles and values ​​of UNESCO, promote education and citizenship, and organize projects and activities that serve the community in line with sustainable development goals and youth priorities; The UNESCO Club was established at the Islamic University of Lebanon in 2019, which included 16 students from the following majors (science, arts, translation, engineering and business administration) to form the core and foundation of this club in addition to 150 volunteers .

The UNESCO Club has undertaken two projects:

  • The first project, “Sawa”, targeted the poor class in the Tire region and its environs, by helping poor families and supplying them with clothes, food and books.

  • The second project consists of collecting and sorting plastic bottle caps to contribute to providing support for people with special needs from the poorest and “hungry” families.
