Celebrating Women’s Month

The Manara Center celebrates the resilience of young refugee women around the world — many of whom have escaped unimaginable dangers in their quest for a better life. Throughout the pandemic, our women have been at the forefront of serving their communities to ensure that they are safe and provided with all the resources they require to move forward through difficult times.

The Theater Program continues with a new piece.

Our theater program teaches students structure and provides them with a sense of responsibility in their daily lives. This week our theater teacher Ahmad El-Dalati continues to work with our students on a new theater piece we plan to showcase later this year.

Our English students have graduated this week!

Rodaina, our amazing English teacher has helped over 30 students receive their English Language Certificates this week! We are so proud of you all!

Join us in celebrating them!

Next week we will begin Level 2 English courses and open enrollment for our Level 1 course

Manara Inspirational Center For Teens

Since its opening in 2018, the Manara Center has worked closely with the refugee community to help educate and inspire over 300 young adults and 100 kids. Our teachers and mentors provide the guidance and educational programs to help these youth grow into good citizens of the world.

For the past twelve months our fundraising efforts have been severely hampered by COVID-19. We were unable, as we did in the past, to hold in-person events like screenings of short films produced and directed by our student filmmakers. We have been limited to hosting a small number of online events that barely kept the lights on at the Manara Center.

Today, we are in dire need of your support. Help us to help our students continue to learn and express themselves through our art and education programs. Contribute to the cause. Over the years, your donations have touched the lives of these very special children, some of whom have never seen the inside of a school room. Donate now and help the Lighthouse Peace Initiative be a beacon of hope in these dark times.

100% of our proceeds go to funding our programs. A donation of any size helps significantly.

Celebrating The Magical World Of Theater!

“Sometimes our dreams are bigger than our reality. The theater stage accommodates to those dreams.”

Ahmed Dalati, Manara Center Theater Program Instructor 

“Three years ago we set off, running towards our passion, our eyes and our hearts were present. We felt alive on stage as we gleefully greeted our audience. Our biggest prize is the applaud in recognition of our performance and the smiles from the children that bring about warm feelings of a new spring. It is a wonderful affirming feeling that our story was heard.”

100% of our proceeds go to funding our programs. A donation of any size helps significantly.
