mishwar means journey in arabic. come + join us on this one.

we’re mishwar, a scottish charity living and working in north lebanon. we work with refugee youth and local communities in creative ways, with a focus on letting children be children. we love what we do, but we would love it even more if we didn’t have to exist. we want our community to be able to sustain itself and our children to have the chance to thrive. we’re here to help make this happen, so we’ve created this site to share everyone’s stories, ideas and skills. this website is our community.
