GROW's Mission

GROW reaches Syrian refugee, migrant worker, and under-resourced Lebanese families by preparing their children for primary school. We also have a holistic impact on the families through our Adult Mentoring and food programs. Our center contributes to a healthier community.

GROW's Vision

Our vision is to change the lives of at-risk children and their families in Lebanon and Syria by providing quality education. We also impact the lives of local women by providing them decent work, fostering economic growth, and supporting gender equality. We plan to replicate the early childhood development and adult mentoring programs throughout the Middle East so that other communities may adopt our holistic approach to supporting marginalized families.
