What We Do
The Lazord Foundation supports the design, implementation, and development of experiential and educational programs for young professionals in the Arab and Mediterranean region.
Youth are innovating and developing opportunities to effect positive and sustainable change in their communities. They believe they have a responsibility to each other and to future generations. We have the opportunity to champion their ideas and give them the building blocks to become responsible leaders.
FUND THE LAZORD FELLOWSHIP
We fund Lazord Fellowships, which create leadership and professional development opportunities for recent college graduates by connecting them with local internships, trainings, mentoring, and professional networks. We currently support fellowships in 3 countries: Egypt, Jordan, and Tunisia.
SUPPORT THE LAZORD CHAPTERS
One of the foundation’s highest priorities is to identify local organizations to implement the Lazord Fellowship, and to participate actively in the development of the program and its curriculum. Based on years of experience, knowledge of the region, and extensive networks, the foundation has been able to identify highly qualified, mission-driven organizations to manage the Lazord chapters. The foundation strongly believes in the importance of fostering a sustainable and collaborative relationship with each Lazord chapter.
BUILD REGIONAL NETWORKS
The foundation creates networking opportunities for the exchange of knowledge, experiences, and best practices. This is done through organizing regional conferences, facilitating continuous cross-cultural communication, and sponsoring professional development for all members of the Lazord community. We aim to build and connect a Lazord community of diverse and responsible leaders who are motivated by their passion for civic engagement.
