Campaign unsuccessfully ended on: 21 Jan,2016

This project has not been successfully funded. Sorry!

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

Walking Across Lebanon is a SOLO 333Km walk and hike.

Marhaba! My name is Bilal Salameh, 24 years old photographer from Beirut. My idea for this project is to walk and hike the mountains of Lebanon for a simple cause : raise funds to support the youth for their original projects / workshops/ or even developing events in collaboration with local NGO's. In addition, thro this walk I'll be reproving to the Lebanese and the world the true view of hospitality, ingenuity, peace and love nature of Lebanon and its geoghraphy.

The journey will be documented to hopefully turn into a short creational film.

By supporting this you're creating opportunities for the youthful ides and projects that are waiting to burst and encouraging the creative mind of our local communities.

And as Jubran Khalil Jubran said: “Ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country.”

I'll be leaving everything behind and walking around Lebanon for its sake, for its beautiful nature and for its future young minds which I'm proud to belong to as well.

What I Need

The funds are needed for technicalities of this journey, such as :

-1500$ for Digital equipment :-  For documentation!

-2000 $ for Gear : Clothes supplies, solid and firm tent for the snow, wilderness tools for survival [in the mountains]  

- 1500$ for Food supplies : dry and canned food [ due to low space in my backpack ofcourse !! ]

The Impact

- Every dollar put into funding this project will be a resemblance to the importance of funding the ideas of our creative young generation that can make a change in their lives and our growing culture.

- This project would also ring a bell for all the backpackers and hikers around the world for a country in the Middle East that is rich of beautiful mountainous hiking experiences.

- Encouragement of internal tourism especially when screening the documentary and publishing a book [a hopeful resolution - Rediscover the nature of Lebanon and its unique combinations of geographic features.
