United Nations' Campain "Together"- Al Manar Modern School
TOGETHER is a United Nation's global initiative that promotes respect, safety and dignity for everyone forced to flee their homes in search of a better life.

TOGETHER brings together the organizations of the United Nations System, the 193 member countries of the United Nations, the private sector, civil society, academic institutions and individual citizens in a global partnership in support of diversity, non-discrimination and acceptance of refugees and migrants.

TOGETHER creates a strong, persuasive narrative of solidarity toward refugees and migrants and showcases the shared benefits of migration to economies and nations, while also acknowledging legitimate concerns of host communities. TOGETHER provides a platform for stories of and by refugees and migrants and host communities that have benefited from welcoming them. TOGETHER tells stories of children on the move.(https://together.un.org/ )

Based on our shared visions and beliefs, Al Manar modern School was and is still working on this issue. In 2013, three of our senior high school students :Rami Masri , Sarah Fleihan and Ayyad Masri, created a short film called "Miracle Across My Balcony" that tackles refugees and the inconveniences they face in different societies. They submitted it to the United Nations' Plural and International Competition.

This competition gathered 254 projects from 71 countries and they were one of the THREE winners. Many activities were done to promote social acceptance and to value diversity and the most recent activity was the photographs presented in the School's Art Fair, taken by our student Hanine Abulhosn who focused on Syrian Children who are suffering from poverty and not having their right of education. We believe that with all efforts combined "Together" will fulfill our aims in promoting peace, respect, safety, and dignity for everyone..
