**“Be7ke?” is an independent, self-funded project that was launched during Ramadan 2011. “Be7ke?”, slang for “ Should I Speak?” in Arabic, was created by youth for youth and seeks to present timely ideas, concerns, and stories of young women and men who are struggling to overcome a tidal wave of personal challenges, stereotypes, and misrepresentations.
Although originally intended for a Lebanese audience, “Be7ke?” viewership exploded and now spans 125 countries! Within only one year, Team “Be7ke?” went global, with teams stationed across North America, Europe, Africa, and Asia in preparation for season two - Ramadan 2012. Most team members have never met in person and rely solely on social media to plan, coordinate, and promote the project.
Be7ke?’s enthusiastic fans also rely on social media to interact with Team “Be7ke?” and spread the word, describing episodes as “powerful”, “inspirational”, and “bringing tears to one’s eyes”.
