BRAG's social initiative, Brag Heart, is a platform that aims to support creativity through education, specifically for children in distressed or underprivileged communities within the Middle Eastern region. Allowing children to pursue their innovative dreams is a cause that resonates with our hearts. Through a sense of social responsibility and value for creativity, we continue to explore new ways of facilitating artistic evolution and opportunities.
Creative Space Beirut is a free school in fashion design providing quality creative design education to talented individuals who lack the resources to pursue a degree at increasingly costly institutions of higher learning. Their students come from diverse backgrounds and commute to the studio from all corners of Lebanon, including Palestinian refugee camps, Saida, Chouf, Tripoli, and Bourj Hammoud. They do not have the means to pursue an education or career in fashion design; however, they share a talent and aptitude for design and demonstrate a commitment to hard work. Creative Space Beirut offers these talented, young individuals a unique opportunity into design education as well as the design industry. Creative Space Beirut aims to make design education accessible to those with vision, flair, and the driving impulse to create.
The "Support Education Program" aims to provide children in developing countries access to quality education because we believe in the power of education to transform lives.
The education systems throughout the region continues to face several challenges, such as poor conditions of schools, overcrowded classrooms, high levels of illiteracy among students, low girl participation in the classroom and school, and a high student to teacher ratio. This results in poor quality of education and low attendance rates.
The program aims to employ some of these remedies to improve the quality of education and ensure a safe and engaging school environment. The intervention will adopt a multi-faceted approach to achieve the planned objectives by providing children with the needed competencies to cultivate leadership skills through schooling and extracurricular activities.
