Ali Bin Abi Taleb- Al Makassede, Lebanon |


We are delighted to share a blog written by Ilham Zalat, a student at Ali Bin Abi Taleb- Al Makassede who is part of a team delivering a Global Goals project for the 2018-19 Global Goals Competition.

Their project is among over 620 social action projects currently running as part of the GSL movement and we are excited to be supporting them to design and lead positive social change in their community. 

It’s an amazing experience because, i feel that i have a voice in this country.

Project Summary

Our project mainly talks about lessening the amount of water used, since Lebanon is suffering from deficit rainfalls. We are going to talk with Beirut municipality to do this project on watering plants in the streets, by automatic watering system (in process). We did a campaign to raise awareness for water and we told them about our project.

Our Journey

The skill are the following:



Being responsible/ we should care about others too, their life is our life.

Our biggest challenge is failure however our hard work will give us a great result

The Next Chapter

Actually, I recommend all people not just people my age, because water is a very serious issue and without it we cant live. Our mission is to stop wasting water for nothing, be responsible about it. Moreover, youth should participate in such competitions so that they can make their voice being heard.

The 2018-19 GSL Global Goals Competition is now open and runs until June 2019. If you belong to one of the 700+ teams of students currently delivering a social action project as part of the competition we would love to hear from you and feature your blog and project photos on our website to inspire others.
