Better Together Scholorship Program
We are referring to "Better Together” financial aid and scholarship program. It is a way to allow people to contribute donations to a fund that goes directly towards providing financial assistance to secure education and inspire students with high potential and outstanding capabilities. While your monetary help is significant your connection and loyalty to the RHHS is of equal significance. Continuously recall one hand is for you to help yourself, and the other is to help others , how blissful you would be helping the institution closest to your heart! RHHS Alumni Association is very proud to announce the digital launch of ‘Better Together Scholarship Program’, a financial aid program that aims to support high achieving students whose families face challenges in fulfilling the school's tuition fees. The program will be funded through RHHS alumni and its wider community making it one of the best ways to give back to the institution that shaped us growing up. The dire economic situation in Lebanon has made it very difficult for many families to keep their children in their schools, and parents at RHHS have been no exception. However, it is in the most difficult of these situations that we need to make sure that our students' education is the one thing that is not compromised. As the great Nelson Mandela once said, "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." If we want our children to change the world, we have to make sure we provide them with the most important weapon - their education. Your generous contribution, regardless of how big or little, sends a very important message to our students today and it is: 'You are not alone. We are here for you, and we will always be better together!' The RHHS alumni will continue to do their best to give back to the student community and through Better Together we hope to support as many students as we can and to make sure they remain to be students of RHHS. We look forward to your generous contribution and thank you in advance for supporting the work we're doing. With much gratitude, RHHS Alumni Association

Help me fund my Master's Degree in Finance
Hello, My name is Hady Abi Saleh and I am starting this page to help me raise funds to continue my education at Kozminski University in Warsaw Poland. I have been admitted to the Masters in Finance and Accounting program for the year 2022/2023. My master's program is a two years (4 semesters) program. The Target amount covers my tuition fees of approximately 13500$ (it changes due to the difference of exchange). As well as covering 1 year of expenses (rent + food + transportation). Below you can find all the needed information about the master's I chose, Including tuition fees. https://www.kozminski.edu.pl/en/programs/graduate-programs-master/master-finance-and-accounting I have chosen this masters due to its ranking in the Financial Times (#19 worldwide) and the work opportunities available at the corporate partners of the university (Citi bank, KPMG, Accenture). Poland is relatively an inexpensive country to live in. I have settled for a budget of 500 $/month, which includes a Monthly transportation pass (30$), rent of 300$, and 170$ for groceries. Another benefit of enrolling in this master's program is that I can study for the CFA certificate in parallel, which costs around 1500$ per year. This certificate is the most prestigious certificate in the world of finance, and along with this highly ranked master's, I believe I will have the right foundation to start a successful career in finance. My country Lebanon is going through an economic and financial crisis, where our local currency has lost its value. ( in 2018 1$ = 1500 LBP ----> 2022: 1$ = 34000 LBP) and still counting. On top of that, Lebanese people have lost their life savings and their net worth, their money is stuck in their bank accounts and cannot be withdrawn. All of that alongside the great depression our economy is going through, it is hard to find a well-paying job. Our minimum wage (as of the moment of writing is 20$ PER MONTH).

Help Jana get her Masters at NYU
Hello! My name is Jana Kabrit. I just completed my undergraduate in Mechatronics Engineering from Rafik Hariri University in Lebanon. Through my experiences in the past 4 years, I have been working toward futhering my studies overseas. My hard work paid off and I got accepted into NYU Tandon School of Engineering, one of the best engineering schools in the world, with an acceptance rate of 12% in 2022! I am looking forward to a master's in Mechatronics and Robotics where I will specialize in AI (Artificial Intelligence) for Mobile Robotics. Throughout my undergraduate years, I have maintained a Honor's scholarship (GPA 3.75/4), led multiple clubs, completed 3 internships, and won numerous hackathons and engineering competitions. I am extremely passionate about Robotics and AI and wish to continue making a difference to peoples’ lives. This specialization will allow me to start the career that I have been working for all these years. For this fundraiser, I am looking to raise the amount for the first semester, 40,000 USD, which covers tuition, housing, and travel fees before my semester starts in September 2022. Since I am an international student, I can only apply for research assistantship positions to cover the remainder of the tuition fee and living expenses once I officially travel to New York and begin my semester in September. Any amount, no matter how small, would be of great help to me. Thank you so much! - Jana Kabrit

Let's Give Back
Dear members of the alumni family, We hope you and yours are doing well. As we have all come to realize, we are living in unprecedented times worldwide, and Lebanon is no exception to this. With a severe economic depression affecting every Lebanese family, our ASG families are struggling more than ever before. Sadly, more than 40% of ASG families are unable to pay their tuition fees and as the Alumni Committee, we felt it our moral obligation to do something about that. Although the school is trying its best in every way possible to support the families, there is only so much it is able to do. For this reason, we are reaching out to you to help us in supporting the most vulnerable families. ASG has always been more than just an educational institution: it has been a safe haven, a family, a place where we grew up and learned what life was all about, a place where we made lifelong friends, and a place where we learned how to pray for and serve others. For those of you who are able to help, the ASG Alumni Committee is organizing a 2 months fundraising campaign (March 12 till May 15). In turn, we pledge to be as transparent as possible with your donations and we plan to: 1. Issue a signed receipt in your name 2. Share a monthly financial statement of the donations coming in 3. At the end of the campaign, we will issue a detailed report signed by an authorized accountant including details of all the donations (including receipt codes) and also how the money was spent to help the ASG families (anonymously of course) **Transfer fees would be applied Life may have put us in different corners of the world, but we will always remain family and friends and our children’s future and education can bring us all together. Thank you for supporting this cause and for being a beacon of hope. We appreciate you all and hope for much better days ahead. With Gratitude, The Alumni Committee For any questions please feel free to contact George Abi Saad at 03288567.
