Donate to Children and Youth
Please support our current fundraising to help youth in Beirut
The devastating explosion in Beirut has hit the city’s children and youth particularly hard.
Supporting this campaign you help to give them a safe place to meet and practice sports and communities.
What do you support?
Young people in Beirut are suffering right now in a city wrecked by the devastating explosion, by economic collapse and by political hopelessness. Youth have no safe places to meet, play sports and very little hope for the future. When you support this campaign, you donate basketball hoops, football goals and balls for the refurbishment of safe spaces for youth-led street sports in Beirut.
The abandoned industrial building that was supposed to be the first GAME House in Lebanon was, like the rest of the city, wrecked by the explosion in Beirut on August 4.
GAME is rebuilding the dream of a GAME House for youth to come together for street sports, culture and youth-leadership. This campaign will support with basketball hoops, football goals, balls and music for safe spaces in Beirut that will provide children and youth in the shattered city a place to meet, to be heard, do street sports, culture and communities – and to find the strength to rebuild their city.
What happens if a GAME House in Beirut does not become a reality?
Lebanon is an unstable place to work right now. That’s exactly why GAME is there. Children and youth are always particularly vulnerable when a country is in crisis, when disaster strikes, when the political system fails, when voices are oppressed and rights are violated. GAME has been working in Lebanon since 2007 to make a social difference through youth-led street sports and culture. Because we know how powerful it is to give the baton to youth when we want to create change for youth. If the GAME House in Beirut unexpectedly does not become a reality, your money will go to renovate other safe spaces in Beirut for street sports, children and youth.
