    Descripción

    Did you know that, relative to the size of its population, Lebanon hosts more refugees than any other country in the world? Nearly 20% of people living in Lebanon are refugees, mostly from neighbouring Syria.

    We are an NGO based in the breathtaking Bekaa Valley, about an hour's drive from Beirut. We provide support to vulnerable members of the local and refugee communities, through education, livelihood and social stability services and the distribution of emergency aid.

    Volunteers run our English, French, art, sport and dance classes, as well as our cinema club and early childhood education programme. They also support our local staff during aid distributions and basic Arabic, maths, yoga and music classes.

    We host volunteers year-round to help run our projects. Since 2016, more than 600 incredible people from over 30 countries have come to help us. Will you be next?

    You will work as part of a team of international volunteers alongside our local staff, and will be serving displaced Syrians and Palestinians as well as the Lebanese population. This provides a perfect opportunity for meaningful cultural exchange, and is what a lot of former volunteers said they found the most rewarding.

    For those who are interested in learning Arabic, we can recommend some excellent local teachers.

    We are looking for open-minded, driven and dedicated volunteers who can commit to being part of our team for an absolute minimum of one month, and who are aged 23+. We are primarily focused on supplementary education for young children. Other projects include: adult ESL classes, community dinners and material/food aid distributions.

    We provide our own training and are open to welcoming volunteers from all kinds of backgrounds! That said, we typically receive applications from more potential volunteers than we have room to accept. Preference is given to those who can commit to a minimum of three months and meet at least one of the following criteria:

    - You have a TEFL, CELTA or other English as a Foreign Language qualification
    - You have a French as a Second Language qualification
    - You have a bachelor's degree in Education, a PGCE certificate, or similar
    - You have experience working with vulnerable children, for example as a social worker or as part of another refugee-focused NGO
    - You have experience in Social Media and Communications
    - You speak some Arabic
    - You hold an International Driving Permit or can obtain one prior to arrival

  • Alojamiento

    Alojamiento

    We have a volunteer house with several dorm rooms, a shower, large communal living area and kitchen. Each volunteer is expected to participate in our weekly cooking and cleaning schedule. As we are a charity, we ask volunteers to contribute $100 (USD) a month to cover their accommodation costs; this money goes directly to covering our rent of the space and funding the work that we do.

    As we live and work closely as a team, it is very important that you are comfortable living in a communal space, and committed to interacting kindly and constructively with other team members.

    Algo más...

    We ask that all of our volunteers are fully vaccinated (two doses) from COVID-19.

    Weekend travel for sightseeing is permitted, but we ask that volunteers do not attend large group events with people outside of our bubble (volunteers and staff). This includes, clubs, weddings, crowded bars etc. We work with many vulnerable people and need to ensure we do our best to protect them.

    We love hanging out together on the weekends: reading, chilling in the sunshine, playing board games, firing up the pizza oven, doing yoga or meditation, going for walks in our beautiful village etc.
