As the first venture philanthropy organisation working exclusively in the Arab world, Alfanar aims to strengthen grassroots organisations that serve the region’s most vulnerable citizens. We apply the principles of private sector investment to charitable giving and offer small-sized grants and highly engaged coaching and management support to social enterprise organisations -- organisations that generate both financial and social returns while also transforming lives in the region’s most disadvantaged communities. We work hand-in-hand with these organisations, supporting them to become resilient and financially sustainable in their local communities while bolstering civil society in the Arab world.True to the meaning of our name in Arabic, Alfanar strives to be a ‘beacon’ of change for the Arab world.
