Our Work in MENA

From North Africa and Egypt to the Gulf and the Levant, we have helped young people in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region develop sustainable agriculture solutions, create peer-to-peer mental health support systems, and advocate for the rights and inclusion of immigrants.

Our community of young social innovators is spread across the region and represents nearly every country. We are proud to support their transformative changemaking work through our programs, such as the regional Accelerator held in Dubai in the Fall of 2019, the region-wide Hackathon in the Summer of 2020, and our Impact Rooms.

By providing young leaders with the skills, resources, and community support they need to create positive change, we can build a brighter future for the MENA region and beyond.
