Young Lebanon

Let’s face it. The news we hear out of the Middle East tends to be pretty rough, and dispiriting. Well, this week I’m sharing a different set of perspectives — a collection of stories profiling tweens and teens growing up and coming of age in Beirut. We meet them up close, and get their sense of the future — for their country, and for themselves.

Each day, Monday through Thursday, you can hear a different radio piece on PRI’s The World in this series. I’ll be posting them on my website as they air. You can hear the first one above. And here’s a video trailer for the whole series:

This story was supported by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.
