Our Impact


Healthy communities require more than just access to basic necessities. At Anera, our goal is to help people in some of the world’s most insecure regions by empowering them with the tools they need to improve their lives. With your support, we’re able to achieve this goal in many ways.

Our community-focused sports activities engage women and youth, creating opportunities for all. Through our programming, we’ve helped people like Othman, of the Shatila refugee camp in Beirut, gain soccer coaching skills he can pass along to underprivileged children.

Our vocational courses benefit people like Mohammed — of Tripoli, Lebanon — who refused to let his physical disabilities stand in the way of realizing his dream of becoming a graphic designer. We’ve also helped Mashhour — of Akkar, Lebanon — parlay his love of technology into a career in mobile phone maintenance.

For people living in refugee camps, the simple joys of playing sports and having meaningful work can make a huge difference. With your support, our teams are developing smart, community-focused programming that helps youth and adults alike achieve these goals.
