Feeling lost and don't know what all of this is about?

We're spreading yoga in underprivileged communities in Lebanon and we need your support to provide the beneficiaries with yoga mats and to equip the camps and the community centers with the needed material.



Koun is a Lebanese NGO that aims to make yoga accessible to those who need it. We believe that access to tools for total well-being should not be a privilege but a norm that everyone should have, no matter the age, race and social class.

We're currently working with:

- Syrian refugee kids in Akkar

- Palestinian and Syrian women in Shatila

- Domestic workers in Jounieh

- Underprivileged Lebanese in Tripoli and Burj El Barajneh

- Syrian refugees and Lebanese in different parts of Bekaa



We travel by van to the classes, we offer them for free and we teach in unequipped spaces. If you believe in our mission, help make our experience smoother.



The money that will be raised from this campaign will help us:

- Get personal yoga mats for the kids in Akkar who've been practicing yoga for 10 months now

- Equip two community centers with the needed props

- Cover transportation expenses for 2 months 


If you can't contribute, share our page, spread our mission, help us promote peace and well-being!
