Bridging Lebanon's Sectarian Divides Through Decades of Community Service and Unity

An indigenous movement born in the midst of a raging civil war in Lebanon in 1985 transcending the enduring challenge of sectarianism in Lebanon. Our vision is to “gather the entire family of Lebanon, a treasure for humanity” by “serving with and for the Other” while practicing our core values of Respect, Forgiveness, and Love. Over our four-decade history, we developed four categories of activities designed to be cross-confessional and unifying in tenor:
Children’s Camps & Activities
Since 1985, OffreJoie organizes every summer, 10 free of charge summer camps for 100 Lebanese children, refugees, and teenagers from different religious and social backgrounds.
