Those Who Inspire LEBANON

Be Curious – Read – Be Inspired

June 2018

We are happy to announce the release of the book Those Who Inspire LEBANON set to inspire and motivate Lebanese Youth.

The book portrays 59 inspiring Lebanese from all walks of life.

The purpose of Those Who Inspire is to empower Millennials and to boldly encourage them to pursue their dreams and, above all, believe in themselves. Each book explores a wide spectrum of role models and mentors from their own country, sharing their experiences, successes, failures, wisdom and advice. It’s a literal roadmap to the future, paved with storytelling, energy, and life.

TWI is a firm believer and advocate of gender parity, however we are glad to announce that out of the 59 portraits 30 portraits are on Lebanese female individuals, giving therefore a slight majority to women.

This book, which is free of advertising and ranking, highlights the advice, experience, passions and wisdom of Lebanese who add value to the community and are mentors or in the process of becoming mentors to local youth. Important to note that all the IP (Inspiring People) portrayed have agreed to become mentors when contacted by young readers of the book or/and participate in talks.

Regardless of reputation and level of civic or corporate responsibility, all the IPs are committed to acting as mentors, and sharing their values and beliefs with the younger generations. For Those Who Inspire they donate their greatest resource of all: time.

The books are donated to students in public universities in collaboration with our partners (Those Who Inspire Movement).

Also young Lebanese employees will receive books via donations from their companies or the institutions that have partnered with us. The more companies or institutions partner with TWI the more books are given as free donations to students under the concept of 1 book to the partner = 1 extra book donated to Universities. TWI hopes to reach as many young Lebanese as possible since, a few months after the physical book is published, a free online Pdf version will be available for all.

“We know from experience that the right kind of inspiration can change the course of a young person’s life. That’s what inspiration is all about, and we are honoured to facilitate that in any way we can,” says Delphine Barets Co-Founder and Publisher.

“I just spent around 9 months working on Those Who Inspire LEBANON, and I am amazed at how many inspiring Lebanese I´ve met are dedicated to inspire empower and guide their youth through sharing experiences,” says Alejandro Andrés, Co-Publisher TWI Lebanon.
