"When shook to the core we look for kinship. Against the pain of August 2020, Khaddit Beirut granted us faith in collective synergy. As an educator, I work daily on building community among learners; no growth gets accomplished without mutual support, trust, diligence, and a sense of common purpose."
Bassima El Masri
"Amidst the failures and tragedies of our system, I was looking for like-minded people to respond to despair and to show that another – better – way was possible. KB’s work in responding to crises and fostering social justice inspired me to join hands with their inclusive, participatory and evidence-based mission.”
"The fulfilling feeling of contributing to one's community might look like a cliché; yet, when I heard Khaddit Beirut people describe passionately their work, I realized that I want to join hands with them and work collectively to shape our society. As a sociologist, I knew that we need to become all agents of change!"
Dina Hakim Agha
"I co-founded Khaddit Beirut because the explosion shook us to a point beyond return and because after that I could not recognize myself. I could not find myself except through the solace and hope that we are building together. I joined and continue here because we need to break the cycles of oppression and corruption, together."
