Zaher blev stiftet i 2016 af Sofie Bervild Nielsen og Iben Holck under et ophold i Libanon.

Det er en kerneværdi i Zahers tilgang at skabe samarbejder og partnerskaber stærkt forankret i og drevet af lokale organisationer og aktører i Libanon, og aktivt arbejde for at gøre op med ulige donér - modtager - forhold. Det er vores lokale partnere, der driver projekterne, og i Libanon støtter vi udelukkende lokal arbejdskraft - lønnet som frivillig.

I Zaher er vi heldige at have mange dedikerede og dygtige frivillige fra både Danmark og Libanon, der altid holder projekterne kørende, bringer nye idéer på banen og sørger for den igangværende udvikling af vores organisation.

Hvis du kunne tænke dig at være en del af vores arbejde i Danmark, vil vi meget gerne høre fra dig.

Donér i dag

To make the gardens flourish, we need your support. Gardening doesn’t cost a lot – which is why your donation, regardless of the amount, can be a turning point for the creation of more learning gardens. Any donation makes a huge difference for our ability to let more gardens bloom in Lebanon. Zaher is a small organization, running 100% non-profit in Denmark due to volunteering efforts only. Thus, all donations will go directly to the learning garden projects.
