About Elgorithm for Schools 

Elgorithm for Schools is a digital platform providing schools with access to mental health programs and tools for access to quality education and higher education. Every partner school receives access to our 3 programs: (1) Omnia (2) Young Thinkers Program (3) Microsoft Digital Training 

90% of youth in Lebanon report struggling with mental health issues, while 6% have access to such services.
