Hello ,

Thank you all for your interest in Masri Center

Hope that I answer briefly all of your questions in this paragraph below

Masri Center is an educational center for more than ten years who is interested in teaching “people with determination”

We are teaching children with special needs such as: autism, trisomy 21, mental retardation, hyperkinesia, and now we want to expand our goals so that we can receive all people with disabilities so we decided to open the blind people’s education department.

As I said, all expenses of educational sessions are covered by partners from public societies and institutions, we are contracted with:

  • Lebanese Army Foundation,
  • Internal Security Forces ,
  • General Security ,
  • Ministry of Health
  • Lebanese Association for Nursery for Special Needs Education,
  • Handicap international (only for Syrian refugees )

Also, these entities send us the people (who care about their affairs, for example: in the Lebanese army, they send the children of the army) who need this education .

For the website like any company or organization we must create one. This web is only an introduction to the center and its services, and therefore we become more widely known, and we can put information on it for special needs education.

What distinguishes the center system is that after every educational session that the child performs, there is a meeting for about 5 minutes between the child’s parents and the specialist, which gives information about progress and advice for the parents that must be followed with the child at home.

But we have noted that parents forget these tips, hence the idea of ​​the application to digitalize this information and send these tips daily to their phones as it will contain information regarding their child’s educational status and progress. And all this information will be uploaded by the specialists in our team.

We will continue to develop until we become a model for a complete educational center that can accommodate all people with special needs. Then we can expand by opening other branches for us in all Lebanese regions, and also sharing our experience with centers and institutions in other countries.

We in North Lebanon are the only ones who provide these services together, and we have agreements with many entities that I have enumerated before, and this indicates the confidence that we have .
