Upcoming SkillPills: 
And how are SkillPills workshops sustained?? SkillPills are sustained by giving the people what they need. The delivered Skillpills are based on market research and people's demand. We constantly broadcast our events on our social media channels (fb, twitter and ig) We also collaborate with events aggregating companies like lebtivity, 3ish beirut... The modest income generated from skillpills is used to market future Skillpills and to support the space and trainer's expenses.
