LEBANESE EMPOWERED

AGAINST POVERTY (LEAP)

The past couple of years have taught us a crucial lesson in humility; that we should not take anything for granted and do our utmost to extend a hand to those in our society that are willing to sacrifice their own safety for the better good of others and the country.

Who We Are

We are a community of Lebanese descendants and others who share a common interest in Lebanon and our mission; committed to healing Lebanon.

Driven by our belief in our shared humanity, we are dedicated to helping the Lebanese people fulfill that promise for themselves.

Save Our Students (S.O.S)

Working for a Lebanon Where Every Child Can Grow, Learn and Lead .

S.O.S is a social empowerment program aiming at putting a halt to the fast deterioration of the Lebanese educational sector. 

The program’s first phase focuses on reversing skyrocketing illiteracy and dropout rates among students. It also aims a reversing the decrease in student retainment rates at schools.

The second phase will aim at 1- supporting Lebanese teachers and 2- helping Lebanese youth locate the appropriate resources in order to be proactive in their communities as well as assisting them in university and/or career placements.

The program will be implemented on the ground by Societe St Vincent de Paul & Ajialouna.  For decades, both NGO’s have put education, “youth/girls/women’s empowerment” and “gender equality” at the forefront of their missions. 

Our fundraising strategy combines a three-pronged approach consisting of grassroots (individual donors), charitable (international NGOs & foundations) and philanthropic / corporate channels.
