Volunteer For Lebanon (تطوّعوا للبنانwas established to serve as the national hub for volunteering in Lebanon with the mission "to promote, facilitate, and improve volunteering and community service throughout Lebanon." As a hub, we want to link the many initiatives in Lebanon that promote volunteering and we want to provide support to volunteers as well as the organizations, service institutions, schools, universities, companies, and government agencies that recruit, engage, encourage, and support volunteers.  Volunteer For Lebanon is non-profit, non-sectarian, non-governmental, with a comprehensive approach to volunteering that serves all the stakeholders in the volunteer eco-system. It received its علم وخبر from the Ministry of Interior (#2025) on September 29, 2015. It completed its first year on September 29, 2016. Happy Birthday, VFL!!!
