the961 aims at keeping the Lebanese diaspora connected and up to date with everything that is going on in Lebanon.
With an estimated 20-30 million Lebanese descendants living abroad, there is a huge disconnect between them and Lebanon. Especially when you factor in the language barrier.
We want to keep the Lebanese diaspora feeling close to home, even though they may be half way across the world.
the961 will be home to everything about Lebanese news, guides and engaging content.
We at the961 recognize the diverse Lebanese population in Lebanon and abroad. We believe in the independent Lebanese identity outside of a regional pan-Arab identity.
