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 help.
Here are some ways how to get involved:
We love volunteers. Volunteers help to build bridges between refugees in the camps and the outside community. And there is nothing more important than collaboration. Only together we will find a better future.
Become a Member
Become a member to the Alsama Circle and sponsor a child to receive one of the most valuable things in life: education.
We welcome donations. In fact we need them in order to continue our work. We are currently raising the funds to cover school year 2021/22 for our Teenager Education Institute in Shatila. We would also love to open a Girls Empowerment Centre in the Bourj al-Barajneh camp in Beirut.
Visit our Shop
Everything in our shop is hand-made by Alsama Studio. The studio lies in the heart of the Bourj al-Barajneh camp in Shatila. It employs 15 refugee women artisans and most of them are the sole breadwinners of their extended families. The studio runs as an independent social enterprise and all the money made by selling products goes straight back to the studio and the women.
