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.
We believe the diaspora can have a huge impact to improve the future of Lebanon and the Lebanese people. It is by bringing together the diaspora and channeling its potential through projects on the ground in Lebanon that we can build a resilient Lebanon that can serve all its people.
Lebanon is going through challenging times; a combination of economic meltdown, political paralysis, a massive currency devaluation, the COVID pandemic...
The Beirut blast that destroyed one third of the capital has put more strain on an already collapsing economy... Record rates of poverty and unemployment levels are putting a significant burden on many of the NGOs present on the ground to provide the services that the government should be delivering.
It is in this context that LEAP has seen the light to become a bridge between the large Lebanese diaspora across the globe and the homeland; Lebanon.
We at LEAP, Believe in the power of “WE” !
We Believe that by uniting the Lebanese Diaspora around a shared vision, we can fight poverty and reduce socioeconomic inequalities in Lebanon.
We envision a Lebanon where no one goes hungry.

To alleviate poverty in Lebanon, by empowering people to participate in local economies through development of sustainable communities.
