Court website about the queen's visit to Lebanon

The Queen visits Lebanon
On October 15-17, the Queen visited Lebanon to highlight Mentor Arabia. The Mentor Foundation was started by the Queen and WHO 25 years ago.
On Tuesday, October 15, the Queen was welcomed by Lebanese President and First Lady. During the meeting, the Queen informed the Presidential couple about Mentor's activities. The foundation's vision is a world where young people grow and develop healthy and drug-free. To achieve this, the foundation works with mentoring for young people.
In the afternoon, the Queen visited the American University of Beirut where the Queen was given a guided tour of the campus area.
At the American University of Beirut , the Queen made a speech:
“Today, we see a threatening decrease in physical and mental health. Mental and substance use disorders are among the top public health concerns in many countries. One of our own recent surveys found that 4 out of 10 suffer from anxiety about the future.
If we want youths all over the world to live healthy and meaningful lives, we need to take these issues seriously - and respond to them forcefully. ”
Launch of programs for young people
In connection with the university visit, the Youth Mentoring Platform, a joint initiative between Mentor Arabia and American universities in Beirut, was also launched. The program aims to create a strengthening discussion forum for young people. The Youth Mentoring Platform is based on young people's own issues for the future and its challenges, as well as various themes that strengthen self-esteem, create future faith and contribute to a positive development for the participants.
During the evening, the Queen met Lebanon's Prime Minister Saad Hariri. The Queen then attended a charity dinner in favor of Mentor Arabia.

Visit to school
In the morning, Wednesday, October 16, the Queen visited Renee Moawad School. On site, the Queen was given access to Mentor's 4Z program. The program has a strategy for reducing disruptive and aggressive behavior in classrooms. During the visit, the Queen also took the opportunity to walk around the classrooms and talk to the high school students and teachers.
Mentor Arabia's Annual General Meeting
At lunch, the Queen attended Mentor Arabia's Annual General Meeting. At the meeting, the Queen made a speech:
“Preventing harm to children and understanding the development needs of adolescence has been my life's work. Mentor Arabia was founded in 2006 in response to issues addressed at an Arab and International scientific forum in Dubai two years prior. And it makes me proud to stand here today with my fellow Mentor colleagues. In our mission to empower youth globally, we are all part of the Mentor family. ”
Lebanese women's organization
In the afternoon, the Queen visited the National Commission for Lebanese Women. The institution is headed by the president's daughter, Claudine Aoun. During the visit, the Queen attended a roundtable to share stories from Lebanese women who have faced challenges and problems with opportunities and hope.
The organization War Child
The Queen then went to Ambassador Jörgen Lindström's residence. There, the Queen was given the opportunity to meet children from the organization War Child . War Child's work is to give war-affected children a chance for a better future through psychosocial support, education and protection. The Queen's Foundation Care About the Children collaborates with War Child and has supported the organization financially.
To end the day, the Ambassador gave a dinner for the Queen and specially invited Lebanese guests.

Embassy of Sweden in Beirut
On Thursday, October 17, the Queen began her last day in Lebanon by visiting the Swedish Embassy in Beirut. On site, the Queen was given the opportunity to meet the approximately 25-person staff with Ambassador Jörgen Lindström at the head. At the mission work is sent from the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, Sida and the Swedish Migration Agency as well as local staff. From them, the Queen was given information about the various areas of responsibility in, among other things, political reporting, aid activities and migration issues. In addition to safeguarding Sweden's interests in Lebanon, the embassy is also responsible for issues related to Syria.
Meeting with Mentor Arabia
Later, the Queen went to Mentor Arabia's headquarters. There, Thuraya Ismail, Mentor Arabia's Managing Director, had invited a wide range of partners from ministries and civil society. During a meeting, the various Mentoring programs that were implemented in the country and the region were discussed to support young people.
Historic landmarks
The trip in Lebanon was the Queen's first in the country and during the Thursday afternoon, the Queen was also given the opportunity to see some of the country's major sights. Initially, the Queen visited the Jeita caves to see the spectacular limestone formations of the deep caves.
Then the Queen visited Byblos, one of the world's oldest, and since ancient times inhabited cities.
Closing Dinner
The program in Lebanon was then terminated on Thursday evening when the Takreem Foundation gave a dinner in Queen's honor. Takreem is an organization that, among other things, works to shed light on Arab organizations - such as Mentor Arabia - that make social achievements at the forefront.
