Civil Society Programme (CSP)
This programme supports the development of a resilient, sustainable civil society, with a current focus on Lebanon and Syria. We invest in the organisational development of CSOs to improve the chances for these actors to continue to operate, retain their assets between projects, become professionalised and certified to the point where they can access funds from a diverse spectrum of donors, and engage in a sustainable and impactful way. Our focus is on building the social infrastructure to tackle the chronic issues facing the region and ensuring sustainable impact beyond grant making and project support.
Youth Learning, Enterprise, and Innovation Programme (YLEAP)
This programme supports the development of entrepreneurship ecosystems in the Levant region, offering youth-driven social solutions the support needed from ideation to impact investment. It also supports the development of new lifelong learning solutions which includes IT upskilling opportunities and innovation in edtech.
