A blend of cultures and cuisines was on display in Verdun Sunday for the launch of SGR, an NGO that hopes to forge ties between Lebanese and the country's migrant communities.The SGR Team is a group of women from a variety of different backgrounds who started the organization to offer free educational services, including English and Arabic classes, to migrants in Lebanon. The classes, held at a center in Verdun, are also open to Lebanese citizens. Khairy herself is of Sudanese origins but was born and raised in Lebanon. She lamented that people in Lebanon sometimes have misconceptions about Sudanese people. The team currently consists of Iraqi, Syrian, Sudanese and Lebanese women. Each member brings their own expertise and teaches a class in that field.
