Lebanon continues to face the worst financial crisis in the nation’s history. Teachers have suffered significantly as a result.

Julia Wallace with the Beirut Baptist School (a ministry of LSESD) in Beirut, Lebanon says, “You have teachers being laid off. You have teachers immigrating to other countries, or you have teachers staying in Lebanon and living off of significantly reduced salaries. For instance, a teacher’s salary that used to be equivalent to about 1,600 US dollars a month is now probably worth around $240 a month.”
