LEAP is a grassroots volunteer-run program and our work and efforts can only be achieved through the generosity of our supporters and donors. We are actively fundraising to help support both our short-term and long-term initiatives. Please consider donating today!

You can also make a special donation to support one of our 2023 fundraising priorities including:

  • SHINE summer project, which offers over 300 students an intensive and fun English SHINE is LEAP’s flagship program and over a decade old. While our educational projects have been suspended since summer 2020 due to COVID, we are excited to resume for summer 2023! Support our relaunch by donating here.
  • Eid el Fitr cash assistance + urgent medical assistance: To alleviate food shortage and provide adequate food to break Ramadan fast, LEAP pledges to sponsor 500 families with cash assistance. Please set your intention to provide your zakat to Palestine refugee families this RamadanIn addition, LEAP will provide medical subsidies to cover life-saving surgeries or medicine as they arise.
  • Solar Panels: Due to your kind generosity we provided three solar panels to three community centers and clinics to continue operations—despite the fuel crisis. LEAP seeks to support another 2 centers/clinics with solar panels to overcome the electricity cuts and soaring fuel costs and provide sustainable solutions to longstanding problems.
  • Orphan Sponsorship: Orphans receive an annual sponsorship of $460. Children are selected based on need. For example, one of our sponsored children is a survivor of the tragic migrant boat crash, which sunk and left both of his parents dead. Please consider donating to ensure the continued sponsorship of 20 orphans today. Children are monitored by BAS social workers who engage them in various programs to provide comprehensive support and ensure their overall well-being. Please support a child today by clicking here.
  • Digital skills after school program:  The COVID-19 pandemic forced Palestine refugee children to engage in distance education for the first time. Children faced significant learning loss because they did not have the necessary digital literacy skills to engage in online learning. To equip children with the necessary 21st century skills, BAS will offer students fun courses such as Robotics, Mobile App Development, and Digital Media Literacy to promote digital literacy. Make this program a reality and support today!
  • Scholarships for 29 University students: Palestinians are in a grey area of Lebanon’s labor laws. Although categorized as foreigners, they are excluded from the rights foreigners enjoy and their rights as refugees are unprotected. Palestinian refugee students have limited access to the public education system and access to private universities is restricted by a lack of financial resources. Considering most families are unable to cover tuition due to the tragic economic crises, with your generous support today, LEAP will sponsor 29 university students to cover their tuition fees!
  • Transportation subsidies: Because of the fuel crisis, almost all families are unable to cover the cost of bus fees to send their children to school. This has had a devastating impact on children’s ability to attend school, resulting in high rates of student drop-outs. To support students in critical areas & far distances, LEAP will provide transportation subsidies to 300 students for a period of 3 months. The cost of $20/month is beyond the means of the majority of families and more than the monthly income of families who are largely daily laborers. Please ensure children continue learning & donate today!
