About the workproject

We need 11 volunteers

SB OverSeas is a non-profit organisation registered in Belgium, dedicated to providing essential humanitarian aid, as well as education, vocational training and psychological support for refugees, asylum seekers, and other victims of conflict. We run projects in Belgium and Lebanon. Our philosophy is to provide this aid without reference or discrimination towards any religious or political affiliation.
SB OverSeas is now looking for enthusiastic and capable volunteers to teach English and help run two of our schools and women’s training centres in Lebanon, both of which were established to serve refugees: one in Saida (in the south-west), and another in Beirut (in the west).
Volunteers will have the opportunities to partake in intensive Arabic lessons for between two and eight months.

I recruit volunteers for our Lebanon Volunteer Programme. I am based in our Brussels Headquarters. I wish to connect to as many volunteers as possible and encourage them to participate in our programme and make an impact on their lives and the lives of others.

Work exchange deal

  • shared apartment

We provide accommodation to volunteers who can commit for a minimum of two months and can join at the beginning of a cycle (between 1st and 5th of an odd month of the year, e.g. May, July, September, November). The accommodation consists of an apartment shared with a maximum of 7 other volunteers, which has a kitchen, living room, two or three bathrooms and dorm-style bedrooms shared by 2 or 3 persons (women only or men only bedrooms). To cover the rent and other services provided (wi-fi, filtered water, electricity, heating), we ask for a small contribution two months.

  • shared meals

We provide volunteers with support for the cost of food, by providing $100 per apartment per week. This is usually enough to cover your basic weekly grocery shopping in Lebanon.

  • no money is involved
