Why an NGO wants this Lebanese boy to live his hoop dreams


Ahmad, like many Lebanese kids, wants to be a basketball star when he grows up. For now, he’s getting to train towards his unlikely goal thanks to a Lebanese NGO that believes such dreams are important for children from disadvantaged backgrounds.

This is the second story in my series Young Lebanon airing all this week on PRI’s The World.

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