Please join us at the Arab American Cultural Center of the Silicon Valley for
a chance to hear from Nicole Eid Abuhaydar, the director of Unite
Lebanon Youth Project (ULYP).
Nicole will be visiting from Lebanon and touring the US on behalf of ULYP.
She will share firsthand information about Syrian and Palestinian refugees
as well as the marginalized living in Lebanon and how ULYP is working
diligently to serve them. For Nicole, education is the only tool for social
development and she approaches the issue of marginalization with a
resolution that the word refugee is not synonymous with a person who has
no potential or culture.
Nicole’s work at ULYP gives equal access to children, youth and women
from different communities by creating opportunities and programs for
them to meet each other, learn together and understand that diversity is a
cause to celebrate not discriminate.
Nicole will take half an hour to share and present ULYP success stories
followed by a Q&A. The session will then be followed with coffee hour
where light hors d’oeurves will be served.
