U.S. Ambassador Inaugurates American Corner Tripoli

U.S. Ambassador to Lebanon Dorothy Shea has attended the inauguration of American Corner Tripoli in partnership with Safadi Foundation.

'This American Space at the Safadi Foundation Center will empower youth, women, and professionals through capacity building, cultural, and educational programs,' the U.S. Embassy said in a statement.

During the event, Shea remarked that the American Corner in Tripoli will provide skills-building tools and training to individuals who represent 'the future of this country and who have the desire to make a difference in their communities,' the Embassy added.

'Beneficiaries will participate in a wide array of programming ranging from media literacy and civic engagement to economic sustainment, entrepreneurship, and employability skills,' it said.

Shea meanwhile stated: “We want to see Lebanon prosper, and initiatives like the American Corner in Tripoli offer the knowledge and skills necessary for the people of North Lebanon to bolster their economies, support those in need, and impact their communities.”
