Help our partner, the Lebanese Society for Educational and Social Development (LSESD), as it initiates projects to empower the Church, serve local communities and build up the capacity of its team and campus facilities.
Campus Development – From Grey to Green
Due to issues dating back to the civil war (1975 to 1990), the electricity supply in Lebanon is unreliable and incredibly expensive with many, including LSESD, paying not only for the regular service but also for self-generation. LSESD wants to reduce their campus’ sizeable annual electricity cost and their carbon footprint by installing a Photovoltaic system (PV system) to produce clean electricity from solar power in addition to implementing energy conservation measures. This project will benefit several LSESD ministries that are hosted on the campus including the Arab Baptist Theological Seminary, SKILD Center for children with learning difficulties, MERATH, and Baptist Children and Youth Ministry.
The expected useful life of the project is 25 years and the expected yearly energy savings are close to 45%. A 10-year green loan from the Lebanese Central Bank is covering 77% of the total cost.
Help raise the remaining balance of $92,000 to complete the project!
