The Maronite Academy 2014 Educational trip to Lebanon

60 young Lebanese-descent Christians from 17 different countries around the world visited Lebanon in August 2014 to participate in the Maronite Academy, an endeavor undertaken by the Maronite Foundation and aiming to bring the Lebanese diaspora’s youth closer to their roots and their country of origin. After going through a series of comprehensive online courses tackling the history of Lebanon and the Maronites, the applicants had to undergo a written Essay assessing their cumulative knowledge.
The successful candidates were chosen to partake in the Academy’s class of 2014; they came from Argentina, Australia, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, France, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, South Africa, Spain, UK, Uruguay, and the USA.
The participants’ stay in Lebanon spanned over two weeks during which they attended daily lectures held  at the USEK University by prominent panelists and visited various historical sites and landmarks such as Tannourine, Jezzine, Byblos, Qadicha valley, Bcharre, St. Charbel, Deir el Kamar, and Beiteddine to name a few.

This unique experience had a big impact on the participants as it showed them Lebanon under a new light and changed their perspective of its importance and role. Many described their stay as a dream come true and were communicating their excitement to their families and friends back home on a daily basis as can be seen from the testimonial pertaining to one of the participants’ father:

The Maronite Academy 2014 Educational trip to Lebanon

Greetings from Toronto!

I want to sincerely thank you for your hard work, your generosity, your consideration and most importantly for making my daughter Christine Nassif an advocate of Lebanon.
I thank you for selecting her and for planting the seed to love Lebanon in her heart. She is delighted and honored to be a Lebanese Christian. As a result of the Academy’s work, she feels that she is deeply rooted in Lebanon.
I am very confident that the good seed you planted in Christine will flourish and will be passed on to future generations.
It is through the work of people like you that the Lebanese Christians remain connected with their home country and fully engaged in protecting the Christian existence in Lebanon. I assure you that your hard work will pay off in the long run.
I thank you for being a role model to Christine and for making this trip a worthwhile and enriching experience.

We are planning to celebrate Christmas in Lebanon. I hope I will get the opportunity to meet you and discuss how we can assist the Academy in their mission.
Please pass this message on to the Academy founders and members.
With sincere appreciation,
Michel Nassif - Father of Christine Nassif, Maronite Academy 2014 applicant.
