WHAT'S THE BIG IDEA?

How did all of this start?

After climbing Mt Kilimanjaro in 2013, Mostafa Salameh realised something – he chose to climb that mountain. The team he led, bussinessmen and industry leaders had been able to make that choice too. But a large portion of the youth of today

Don’t have that benefit of choice.

Unable to access modern education in a consistent manner, for reasons that range from poverty to war, a large section of Arab youths are entering adulthood without the social, emotional and financial tools to make a choice about the future. Their future, and the future of their countries.

It was with this in mind, Mostafa approached Rama Chakaki and her team at Baraka. Over the course of several cross-country skype calls and one incredible brainstorming session in Dubai, the team came up with a way to empower Arab youth with the right of choice

Ensure the youth get the best education

By teaming up with ten Arab celebrities and selecting ten carefully vetted educational causes from their home countries, Mostafa and Rama are ready to embark on a year long global fundraising campaign to raise vital funds, FOR:Education 2015

WHY EDUCATION?

Imagine growing up wanting to be President, a doctor, an accomplished athlete.
Imagine being 15 years old and literate..
Imagine spending your school days in a climate controlled classroom, with field trips and regular sports days..

For many of us, it is easy to imagine. However, the reality is – we represent a minority. A growing number of today’s children in the Arab world – tomorrow’s adults – cannot imagine this. Their childhood is bound by outdated teaching practices, little exposure to the world outside a dingy classroom, no access to sports, and living conditions that stifle any imagination.

Youth are often called upon to make a change, but rarely are they given the tools to do so. Growing in camps, or city edges of harsh realities, their teachers are bound by limited budgets, resources and training, making them unable to effectively deliver an education for the 21st century.

A good education is not a privilege – it is a right.
