The Skilling Up Lebanon (SUL) Project

The proposed project will support the promotion of digital skills under the Skilling Up Lebanon (SUL) initiative launched by the World Bank in 2019. This initiative aims to prepare young women and men for the local, regional and global jobs of the future and to attract digital technology (DT) players to invest in the region.

Kids Genius

Kids Genius is eager to spread a “Maker Culture” among youngsters by cooperating with parents, schools, and organizations in the aim of establishing and encouraging innovative minds.


We adopt “Learning By Doing” in our concept. So we help youngsters, through hands-on activities, to discover their dexterity skills and develop them while learning with plenty of excitement about technology, manufacturing, and open source tools.

By exposing them to the different machines, electronic components and materials, they will start implementing their creativity in actual new products.
