Who We Are
MARCH is a Lebanese non-profit, non-governmental organization working to promote social cohesion and personal freedoms while advocating for equal rights through its work in peace-building and conflict resolution
MARCH was founded in 2011. We started our journey advocating for freedom of expression and intercommunal acceptance and respect. In 2015, our organization began its work in peace-building and conflict resolution. Our belief that arts and culture are powerful catalysts of change helped us develop a unique initiative, Theater for Reconciliation. We used the performing arts to help mend the feuding and war-torn neighborhoods of Beb El Tabbaneh and Jabal Mohsen. The experience proved to be cathartic and inspired a more holistic rehabilitative program, along with two cultural spaces in Beirut and Tripoli. Today, MARCH utilizes a diverse set of tools to build the capacities of local communities and consolidate social ties.
Through our work, we aim to develop the resilience of marginalized youth and help them to build a better future while encouraging constructive dialogue and fostering cross-communal acceptance and respect to create sustainable reconciliation.
Our vision is to create safe and inclusive communities that celebrate diversity and thrive together in unity.
