because many “illiterate ” digital, have shown an interest on how to use Facebook, twitter and other social media platforms,

the National commission for women in Lebanon and the Ministry of Social Affairs have tailored a special training program for beginner users.

They gave me the responsibility to train “Digitally” illiterate women and men on how to use Social Media platforms to make some noise on the web about the causes they champion.

It was one of the most wonderful experience, seeing elder women who usually open Facebook to contact their children abroad with (their help), try to figure out how to make keywords, write catchy status, make interesting pictures….

for you here is the synopsis and the overview of the training program specially tailored for those wonderful women and men!

الفوز في الانتخابات هو أمر شديد الصعوبة، ولكن ما هو مؤكد ان عملية الفوز تصبح أكثر سهولة إذا عرف المرشح، سواء كان رجلاً او إمراة، كيف ينظم حملته، وكيف يواجه المصاعب والتحديات التي قد تعترض طريقه.

I hate to see such messages on my feeds:

I have covered the user’s name maybe they’ll be more mature in there comments next time,

in such difficult times, LEBANESE should all WORK together for PEACE !!!  And the RULE OF LAW;

after Beirut explosion, that my colleagues and I heard from museum square while having lunch,

I was on twitter, Facebook and internet to follow what happened;

we now know that this is an explosion, political or not I don’t care:

it is important to reduce risks for those who were injured:

this is what I propose:

1- donating blood: in all Beirut Hospitals for those who were injured

2- keep calm and let the inquirers find out what happened;

3- mobilise for those who lost their homes, cars and assets with such an explosion…

4- Leave the scene for Red cross and defense! .. observers can you evacuate the scene ? and let people do their work and save Lives??

hatred message among diverse Lebanese will not help in constructing a COUNTRY!!

May God help all those who were injured,
