You Can Help Us Positively Impact The Lives Of These Young Adults.

It’s been ten years since the Syrian people took to the streets in March of 2011 to start a revolution. The call for regime change during the Arab Spring instilled hope in the hearts of everyone in Syria who had been brutalized and oppressed by the ruling government.

Those hopes have been dashed by a decade of civil war and armed conflict, with no end in sight.

We have witnessed the brazen bombing of civilian areas, the horrific deployment of chemical weapons, the deliberate withholding of food, supplies and medical care, and the loss of over 200,000 human lives. This revolution-turned-war zone has displaced over 6.7 million people, creating the largest refugee crisis ever seen in our time. The victims of the civil war fled to countries like Lebanon, Turkey, Egypt, and Germany, places where our critically needed work began.

Lighthouse Peace Initiative (LPI Corp) is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for the most vulnerable populations across the world. Our primary programs are educational and art-based, and focus on providing support to impacted communities.

LPI Corp’s Manara Center is our latest project in Lebanon, where over a million Syrian refugees reside. The Manara Center was created to enrich the lives of refugee teenagers and young adults, as well as vulnerable members of the Palestinian and Lebanese population. Inside the safety of the center, these underserved youths take courses in art, filmmaking, music, theater, and language.

Since its opening in 2018, the Manara Center has worked closely with the refugee community to help educate and inspire over 300 young adults and 100 kids. Our teachers and mentors provide the guidance and educational programs to help these youth grow into good citizens of the world.

For the past twelve months our fundraising efforts have been severely hampered by COVID-19. We were unable, as we did in the past, to hold in-person events like screenings of short films produced and directed by our student filmmakers. We have been limited to hosting a small number of online events that barely kept the lights on at the Manara Center.

Today, we are in dire need of your support. Help us to help our students continue to learn and express themselves through our art and education programs. Contribute to the cause. Over the years, your donations have touched the lives of these very special children, some of whom have never seen the inside of a school room. Donate now and help the Lighthouse Peace Initiative be a beacon of hope in these dark times.
