Registration For Recruiting Mughtaribeen Volunteers

A new magazine will be launched in September for people of Lebanese heritage around the world. Its first issue, HOME FOR CHRISTMAS, will target those who are coming home to Lebanon this Christmas season with features on the cultural scene, family and kids' activities, gifts, outings, dining, festive recipes, shopping and much more. The magazine will feature an article encouraging the returning Lebanese and their families to volunteer. And it will provide information on volunteer opportunities to fit people of different ages, interests, and regions of the country. While the issue's title mentions Christmas - this is only meant to denote the time of year, since we would like to have opportunities for all those returning, regardless of their religious identity. Some opportunities might be for individual volunteers, some for groups, and some for intergenerational volunteering, so that members of a family volunteer could together as a special shared experience. Some of the volunteer opportunities might need special skills, expertise, or knowledge, while others could be done by anyone.
What could the volunteers do? Paint ... Plant ... Sew ... Visit the elderly ...Help those with disabilities ... Build or renovate a building ... Clean and improve a park ... Play with children ... Translate ... Develop a website ... Sing ... Dance ... Juggle ... Read to the blind ... Visit the sick ... Give a presentation ... Teach a skill ... Visit people in prison ... Help refugees or other displaced people ... Write a proposal ... Join an advocacy campaign.
The possibiltiies are endless. But all the opportunities should give the volunteers the opportunity to feel that they made a positive difference in the country.
This is a great opportunity to be featured in a publication viewed by mughtaribeen throughout the world, with a profile of the organization or institution, a description of your volunteer opportunities, other contact information, and possibly a few pictures. This information will also be listed online.
We are also giving the participating organizations and agencies the opportunity to list some things that the mughtaribeen could bring with them to support programs in Lebanon (such as books for schools or public libraries, eyeglass frames, clothes, or children's toys).
For more information about the project and Pidraya go to: http://www.learningtocare.com/home-christmas
If your institution (organization, service institution, school, university, municipality, or government ministry) is interested in having your volunteer opportunities listed, CLICK HERE to complete a brief information form as soon as possible by August 22. We will then send you a separate link to list your volunteer opportunities. There will be no charge for this service.

The Learning to CARE Institute (LTCI) is partnering with Pidraya (see below) in their production of a magazine targeted to مغتربين (Mughtaribeen - people of Lebanese heritage) returning to Lebanon during different seasons of the year. They plan to launch the magazine with an issue called #ff0000;">HOME FOR CHRISTMAS for those coming to Lebanon over the Christmas holidays (November 15-January 15), with future issues focused on Ramadan and Summer 2015.
LTCI will draft an article for the magazine about volunteering of the mughtaribeen, appropriate to the season and to their circumstances. And we would then like to provide a list of at least 20 volunteer opportunities of different sorts to fit people of different ages, interests, and regions of the country. While the issue's title mentions Christmas - this is only meant to denote the time of year, since we would like to have opportunities for all those returning, regardless of their religious identity. Some opportunities might be for individual volunteers, some for people who would volunteer in groups. Some could be opportunities for intergenerational volunteering, so that members of a family volunteer could together as a special shared experience. Some of the volunteer opportunities might need special skills, expertise, or knowledge, while others could be done by anyone.
The institutions that host the volunteers can be organizations, service institutions, schools, universities, municipalities, or government ministries.

This first issue of the magazine will only be in English, and our communications with the participating organizations or institutions will be in English, but hopefully future editions will be in Arabic as well as other languages of the Lebanese diaspora. That does not mean that the volunteer opportunities have to be in English. Specific language fluency can be one of the details to be listed in the requirements for the position. (for example, volunteer must be fluent in Arabic, or French, or Armenian)
