Al-Naqab Center for Youth Activities is a group of local youth that came together in the Burj al Barajneh refugee camp in Beirut, Lebanon. Relying on volunteer and grassroots efforts, they work to improve the lives of refugees in the camp through educational, cultural, and social activities. They amplify their role as youth in the camp through grassroots fundraising strategies that ensure their independence. The group believes that the camp is the first and last station promising its members’ return to Palestine.
A 2020 grant from the Cultures of Resistance Network supported Al-Naqab’s campaign to raise $50,000 to purchase the property on which the center sits to ensure the organization’s long-term stability.
