Why a rally paper?
“Necessity is the mother of invention”. With the deteriorating economic situation in the country and the sharp rise in healthcare cost, our yearly expenses exceeded our revenues. We decided, therefore, to find additional funding sources. Because we believe in hard work, we did not resort to other donors. We decided, instead, to take things into hand and work towards building a sustainable but useful source of income. The idea of rally paper came to mind not only to guarantee the continuity of our services but also to promote culture amongst our youth. Our rally includes riddles, brain teasers, sports competitions, logic/math problems, treasure hunts and special challenges. It combines fun and intellectual competitions and reinforces the picture of our country as a message of culture and peace.
Although this type of events is usually organized by major universities in Lebanon, the experience of Dr. Abboud Assaf and his team in participating in the ESIB Rally Paper for many years and winning the third prize then the first prize in 2002, has allowed ABH to organize an event of a highly professional caliber. Today, The Spring Rally Paper is the only large scale event of its kind in Lebanon which is organized by a charity association with revenues totally dedicated to charity purposes.
