The National Observatory for Women in Agriculture and Rural Areas – NOWARA – and the Italian NGO CTM Onlus, in collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture, the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Culture and the Italian Development Cooperation, have organized the third workshop for directors and counsellors of elementary schools in Lebanon who had participated in the campaign “Stories from our village”, implemented with “Les Amis des Marionnettes” in the framework of the project “Socioeconomic development of the rural population of southern Lebanon”.
The workshop, held on December 12th 2014 in the conference room of the Ministry of Education in Beirut, has involved 28 public schools selected by the Ministry of Education and Higher Education.
The workshop has been an occasion to perform the stories written by the classes of the public schools involved in the campaign during its second phase.
6 schools were awarded the “best dialogic story” and the public libraries who worked with the students on the illustrations of the stories were as well honoured by the organizing institutions.
Finally, the project team distributed the new book published with the stories and illustrations to the 28 schools participating in the third phase of the campaign.
The team of Les Amis des Marionettes is now holding the performances in each selected class.
