The founder "Janira Taibo", a Spanish student doing a university exchange program in Beirut came across an abandoned young boy, "Salah", selling flowers on the street. What started as hellos passing in the street turned into a beautiful friendship. One day, "Salah" asked "Janira" to teach him English. Moved by his simple request, "Janira" began with improvised English lessons for him and his friends on the steps of the National Museum of Beirut. Over time, the number of students, founders, and volunteers increased, which lead to the birth of 26 Letters.
