Alsama means “the sky” in Arabic. We educate refugee teenagers and empower refugee women.Subscribe
Alsama sets up education centres, sports hubs and social enterprises in refugee camps in Lebanon. Our projects are run for – and, in large part, run by – refugee communities.
Alsama connects worlds. We offer refugee children a diverse education, provide refugee women with an opportunity to earn an income, and we give volunteers and donors a way of engaging with a group of people who can do a great deal but need a little support.
We are the first (or only) source of education in years for many of our students.
We keep children out of streets, crime, early marriage & child-bearing, and we empower their mothers by providing work and an income for them.
We use cricket as a unique way to build both physical and mental strength.
