15 Year Old Yasser Needs Your Support

Hello Friends of Nawaya,

Happy New Year! We wish you and your loved ones a wonderful 2019.

As you know, Nawaya has spent the last few years focusing on providing employment and income-generating opportunities for disadvantaged youth in Lebanon. We have so far been able to support almost 5,000 youth, and hope to continue to reach thousands more in the coming years.  We are currently in the process of compiling our data for 2018 and will be able to share with you our qualitative impact in our next report.

For now, we'd like to highlight a success story from a youth led enterprise in Sidon, South of Lebanon. 

Founded by Mahdi Hashem, who is a professional football player, Pro Soccer is a football academy which trains young children to become football players.

Through the academy, Mahdi wanted to share his passion for sports with kids as well as engage them in meaningful activities given the somewhat limited options in his community.

Over the summer, Mahdi has enrolled up to 90 children in his academy, gaining repute and trust for his academy in the area. Following the successful launch of the academy, Mahdi is now preparing for the new round of training, this coming spring. He also plans to send his most talented players to train with professional premiere league European players.

Join us in wishing Mahdi all the best!

In addition, one of our youth from our Talent Program is in need of your support:

In 2013, and at the age of 9, Yasser caught our attention due to his beautiful and strong voice, so with the support of a generous donor, we immediately enrolled him in singing and oud lessons. As Yasser comes from a financially disadvantaged family, we also committed to supporting him with his school fees, food, clothing, and medical expenses.  

Yasser is now 15 years old. Due to some challenging circumstances at school, he is now enrolled in a vocational training institute to allow him to find a job within two years. He continues to take music lessons with someone who has become like a father figure and a mentor to him.

Neglectful parents, severe migraines and negative influences are only some of the issues that Yasser suffers from. For these reasons, we are committed to making sure that he continues to benefit from our support until he completes his training.  We have so far raised $1530, and need to raise just another $2000 (or $167/month).  Would you consider making a donation to help Yasser?

Thank you for your ongoing support!
