Sara Chatilla – Pave the Way

The big surprise of the ‘Doing Good’ competition came with the announcement of a previously unscripted 5th award- MBC Hope Award for Excellence- won by Sara Chatilla of AISEC Lebanon for her youth volunteer initiative called ‘Pave the Way’. Chatilla’s project aims to elevate sentiments of social responsibility, entrepreneurship, as well as teach youth to take their own initiative- especially when it comes to something as important as education. This is done through volunteer youth who contribute lectures on different topics and spend time explaining various subject matter to other curious minds.
