CARE for Special Needs
CARE is a Lebanese NGO which started in 2010 as a group of volunteers working with children and young adults with special needs. Our vision is: The right for each child and adult with special needs to access education and employment with a mission to help teenagers and young adults achieve their utmost potential to become responsible, contributing and independent citizens regardless of their individual abilities through social and professional integration. What we do? Responding to the lack of specialized services, CARE was established with the aim to empower students through specialized education and engaging them in recreational activities to help improve their psychological well-being, in addition to supporting their livelihood opportunities. To reach the ultimate aim of CARE mission, our programs work in an integrated approach providing specialized services and activities according to our targets’ needs.

It is not a charitable project or a social welfare program, but rather an economic project to help the refugees in their steadfastness in the diaspora. The project also aims to reduce poverty within the refugees community in the camps. Enhancing the sources of income for families within the framework of employing the largest possible number of women from the Ain El-Hilweh and Miyyeh camps in the “Zewedetna” food factory. The association needs support more than ever due to the conditions that Lebanon is going through from the Corona pandemic and the stifling economic crisis, which led to an increase in the prices of all basic commodities such as flour, gasoline and diesel, if available. The rise in prices led to a decrease in the profit margin, and the profit here is not financial returns, but rather the wages of women who work in this project, and they are the most vulnerable and under threat of unemployment. Your donation to this project will contribute to reducing unemployment and empowering refugee women in the long run. Nearly 25 women and countless families depend on your donations during these difficult times that Lebanon is going through. Help us help them!

Support the talents of gifted youth.
In the face of one of the most severe economic crises in its history, and a political climate that breeds uncertainty and fear for the future, Lebanese youth are compelled and forced to leave their home country in seeking a better future, immigrating to any country that would welcome and benefit from their world famous innovative and entrepreneurial spirit. Onward is a startup initiative attempting to encourage these youths to cling to their roots and to find a breathing space where their art and intellect is appreciated by providing them with whatever they need to develop and grow their talents. We are a small locally based group of teachers and social workers looking for talented and promising students to encourage them into believing in their homeland and to help rebuild it by rewarding their art and innovation and hopefully sponsoring the most promising ones in the future. We are based in North Lebanon which is its most neglected governate, in the city of Tripoli, one of the poorest city on the coast of the Mediterranean where poverty and lack of education and job opportunities make for a fertile ground for disenfranchisement, we aim to help in quelling the rising tide of extremism by spreading intellectualism and knowledge and helping teens feel like they belong. For every donation no matter how modest we will be able to fund or procure a much needed tool, instrument or precious manuals and textbooks, from painting kits to music instruments passing by any and every tool that would aid a young mind express itself while feeling validated and appreciated. Join us in helping grow the abundant seeds of talent in Lebanon and be part of a very special dream of keeping Lebanese families whole in the hope chartering a course of return to the Eden of the Middle-East.   We have three direct objectives we are hoping to achieve that will depend on the level of funding received: 1- The first objective is to directly procure the tools and instruments needed by the youth to practice and hone their talents and arts; we will conduct an inventory of the things that the children need and publish it and proceed to procure whatever the funding allows. 2- The second objective is to fund classes for gifted children; we will conduct a survey with the participants and attempt to fund the most desired classes and courses to insure that the largest number of them can progress their talents and grow them to professional levels. 3- The third and final objective is to fund the renting of a center that can host these classes and allow for a safe space for any child that feels the need for companionship and nurturing support, where we can centralize and facilitate all the activities of the project, the center would have a library full of textbooks, manuals and even regular books since sadly there is a disastrous lack of public libraries in these areas, as well as containing rooms for classes to take place without having to change venue repeatedly. We aim to help and sponsor any and all types of talent and interest, from scientific to labor-oriented to artistic endeavors, whatever skill or talent the young person wishes to advance, the project will attempt to help them change their future and even try their hands at different types of arts or talents to find that which suits them best . The sad reality is that the severe crises Lebanon is going through and the hyper-inflation has made it impossible for even middle-class families to spend their incomes on anything other than the necessary day to day needs, we strive to help these families and even all people from all walks of life to not neglect their inner voice and to express and advance themselves and to help children do better in schools.
