Volunteering Trip - Lebanon 2022
What was it about?
Two weeks full of unique experiences, new people, amazing places, a great culture, delicious food, and hundreds of lives transformed - including ours!
We volunteered for different causes and did some tourism in our free time and weekends. The best experience of our lives!
We partnered up with Offre Joie to accomplish a great mission:
Rebuild homes, businesses, hospitals, and schools after the blast in Beirut in 2020.
More than 20 volunteers from 7 different nationalities teamed up to give back to the country what they lost in the explosion.
It was a great experience full of cultural exchange, where we were all united for a good cause.
Saving Baabda Forest with T.E.R.R.E Liban
We joined forces to save the closest forest to the capital, considered a key biodiversity area. It contains 425 species of wild plants (including 5 unique species and one globally threatened with extinction), 67 medicinal species, 109 culinary species, 83 honey types, and 171 species of birds (7 of which are globally threatened with extinction as well).
Playing while Teaching English to Refugee children.
Collaborated with a local non-profit school to give a wider world vision to kids that have been replaced due to war and conflicts. The lessons were so meaningful to everyone and full of joy. Allowing them to see that individuals from all over the world care about them was simply priceless.
Tourism, Tourism, Tourism!
Here's a little of what we visited:
- Baalbeck: Phoenician and Roman Temples.
- Nowhere beach
- Akoura lakes
- Jeitta Grotto
- Byblos Souk
- Phoenician wall
What some Volunteers said!
"I joined the Volunteering Trip to Lebanon and it was one of the most beautiful, rewarding, and transformative experience I've ever had. From the moment I signed up I felt so guided, supported and safe. They explained us everything before the trip: the objectives, the itinerary and even a budget for our tourism expenses. I will always be thankful because with Let's do it Amigos because this trip was definitely a dream that come true. I will heartily go with them again to other trips!".

"I have always wanted to volunteer but I never felt comfortable enough to do it alone and some companies were overpriced…
When I found out about Let’s do it Amigos I had no doubt that I had found the perfect association to make one of my dreams come true.
Organized, great cost, and it gives you all the information you need. It was one of the most rewarding and incredible experiences of my life!
I can’t wait till next time".
