Lebanon’s population is hit by the worst economic and social crisis in its history. The deteriorating situation is affecting the wellbeing of kids and youth and is affecting both mental health and social cohesion.
Many areas in Lebanon are lacking open spaces for free expression, due to peer-pressure, political censorship, and confessional tensions. Communities such as migrant workers and refugees are excluded from participating in public debate and having a say in matters that affect their lives.
Children and youth in remote areas lack spaces for culture, creativity, and empowerment. In Beirut, the harsh living conditions have put pressure on people’s mental health and wellbeing. In the absence of culture, art, and democratic debates, this tension is expressed in the streets and can erupt in violence anytime.
To face these increasing challenges, we find ourselves committed to increasing our interventions and building on our experience in social therapy and street theater, to offer more relief to the most affected areas and social groups.
By donating to Clown Me In…
- You will help people affected by the Beirut Blast cope with their loss through psycho-social sessions
- You will help people in remote areas to experience art through street performances
- You will empower youth through training to become artists and deal with the challenges of their communities
- You will help reduce the tensions between host communities and refugees
- You will help women from different communities to learn new skills that will enable them to become actors of change in their areas
How you can help…
Donate money through GlobalGiving.
By donating, you help us increase our interventions, independent from project-based funding, to broaden our reach through performances and workshops, in a more flexible way.
These donations will be used to pay for the transportation of our performers and facilitators in our tour van, their food during the long working days, and a small remuneration for their efforts. In this way, you can help us reach as many people as possible.
Become a member and support us monthly!
By becoming a member and paying a monthly membership of 10 USD (or 100 USD yearly), you can participate in the conception of our work and contribute to our efforts, by becoming an ambassador for Clown Me In. We will inform you about our events regularly and invite you to a member’s gathering once a year, to experience our work from behind the scenes.

Gift as Donation
Are you celebrating a special occasion and don’t want to receive gifts from your guests? Do you want to use this occasion to make a change in the world? Ask your invitees to donate money to Clown Me In instead of buying gifts. We can send you a poster to print out and a fun video to launch your event with.
Pay it Forward
For every performance booked privately, you can finance another performance for free in a remote area. Our prices depend on the duration and number of performers. Contact us to think of a concept that fits your occasion and the expectations of your guests.
We also offer team-building activities that help teams bond and grow together through laughter. By booking our training, you can help us finance another capacity-building activity for a group of young people in a disadvantaged area.
