News from CodeBrave in Beirut

All over the world ministries and workers are adapting to tough, challenging situations to keep serving others. This is true for the CodeBrave team in Beirut as well. The team is hard at work refining strategies to respond to challenging circumstances (the virus as well as the economic collapse in Lebanon) and how they are affecting the vulnerable youth in their region.

Two new CodeBrave projects in Lebanon have been delayed as a result of CoVid-19. Both were set to launch in March-one at a shelter in Tariq al Jedideh, Beirut, and the other one with the Kayany schools in the Beqaa Valley. CodeBrave is continuing to pursue other alternative options with partners in Lebanon to reach the most vulnerable students. Teachers, in the meantime, have been focusing on developing curriculum and teaching practices.

Along with working out options to move forward Steven Wilbur, Co-Director, has been mentoring four of the oldest boys at Home of Hope in life skills important for future employment. Already In the past couple of months seven CodeBrave kids did internships! He is also excited to share the news that one of their students started in a Computer Science coding bootcamp with SE Factory Foundations. SE Factory historically has a 95% employment success rate for students who finish their program. CodeBrave will support this young man however they can to help him launch his career in this field.

This spring CodeBrave had a successful crowdfunding campaign and became registered in the UK as a charity. This is all good news. Please pray for those at CodeBrave as they work through changes needed to continue ministering and serving in Lebanon.
