Legacy of War is currently working towards sponsoring Beyond- a school and nonprofit organisation in Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley. Beyond is a grassroots, community-run institution that not only provides educational opportunities for disadvantaged children, but also provides employment for Syrian refugees and empowers local teachers and staff to work with the children. It is unique in being a local, community-supported institution. Legacy of War plans to contribute 50,000 GBP- enough to cover the school’s costs for one year.
A Case-Specific Scholarship
Legacy of War is sponsoring prosthetic limbs for a limited number of civilians wounded by land mines. These civilians are carefully vetted by the organisation’s founder, Giles Duley, to ensure transparency and accountability. We prioritise civilians living in remote areas, with less opportunities for media attention and international aid; these communities have often been left behind in the wake of ware. In the future, Legacy of War hopes to expand this scholarship program to provide educational and professional support and training. We are hoping to raise 50k to support our recipients. With the support of @randomactsorg and MAG (Mines Advisory Group), Legacy of War just recently provided prosthetic limbs to Sapalo, a young boy from Angola, who lost his legs after stepping on a land-mine.
