Alfanar is the first venture philanthropy organisation working exclusively in the Arab world.
Our aim is to strengthen sustainable, grassroots organisations that generate financial and social returns while transforming lives in deprived communities in the Arab world.
PRODUCTS & SERVICES
We do this by providing tailored technical and financial support to ambitious grassroots organisations, helping them to achieve lasting social change in their communities.
We give special – but not exclusive – focus to investments that improve children’s education and women’s economic empowerment, convinced that influencing change in these areas will help boost wider social and economic development. We are also currently testing the environmental, agricultural, and social technology sectors.
