Our Fund

We are CHREEK a Lebanese NGO founded by passionate and innovative young entrepreneurs and professionals who take sustainability at heart. We are campaigning for a community where human resilience and social impact are celebrated by everyone.

We are funded by partners and supporters like you. We take pride in constantly being independent of any political ideology, economic interest or religion. No government is beyond scrutiny. No situation is beyond hope.

We examine and evaluate facts to find solutions for challenges by creating social entrepreneurial projects and leveraging on our resources to support the most socially disabled communities in Lebanon (mainly through women and youth empowerment and socio-professional reintegration). The latter can be achieved through Agricultural, Environmental, Micro Industrial, Touristic, Health Care initiatives and programs.

We tell the powerful stories of the people we work with, we mobilize partners around the world to drive the development of marginalized individuals and communities. We also empower people to elevate and overcome their vulnerabilities through development, guidance, education and training.

WHERE IT ALL BEGAN

Since 2013

In 2013, Lebanese entrepreneur Georges GHAFARY was inspired by an unexpected encounter, when he bumped into a childhood friend who was jobless after struggling with legal issues and drug addiction. Being familiar with social development planning, he succeeded to employ his friend in a proper job. He shared this story through a social reality TV show that provoked an incredible response. The news was spread across the country, his call to action sparked the idea that people everywhere can unite in solidarity for inclusion and development.

This inspirational moment didn’t just give birth to an extraordinary movement; it was the start of impactful social initiatives and projects.

Chreek Evolves

Over the years, social responsibility has moved from the fringes to center stage in the world. Individuals and institutions are willing to give back to the community. CHREEK has grown passing from seeking the development of youth to adopting environmental justice. We believe that green harms can be solved by diverting investment towards projects that have ecological value and creating employment opportunities for unskilled adults and talented youth.

We merge people's concerns and initiate environmental projects to create job opportunities for marginalized and unskilled individuals, intending to solve their social disability and burdens through environmental solutions. Our work is designing patterns of partnership among members of chaos to attain positive social and environmental effects. We act for anyone and everyone whose independence and dignity are at risk.

CHREEK TODAY

After few years of groundbreaking achievements, CHREEK went through a major transformation, adapting to dramatic changes in the world

We are improving our context from being an environmental booster and social rooter to upholding a whole spectrum of sustainability and adding the entrepreneurial /economic aspect to our framework. Balancing the immediate needs of today without compromising the needs of tomorrow is at the heart of being a sustainable community.

We can now respond quickly to events wherever they happen and be a powerful force for independence and autonomy.
We are also developing concepts using the latest innovations of sustainability main pillars; People (Social & Human), Planet (Environmental) and Physical Evidence (Economic Development) under one framework aiming to shape a resilient community.
Imagine what we can now achieve standing side by side with beneficiaries, partners and advocates in every corner of the country. How many more people will realize their independence and live in dignity? How much more green space will be preserved and rehabilitated? How many more sustainable programs will be conceptualized to increase connectivity?
