CG Fund was established in July 2021 as a response to the growing crisis in Lebanon. The Lebanese are witnessing a major disaster that is taking place in their country as the political, economic, and social fabric of the country is imploding. With so much to do, CG Fund is focusing its efforts on training job seekers, providing access to digital resources, and supporting public schools.
To facilitate sustainable job opportunities for youth and women residing in Lebanon.
To align, coordinate, and leverage the strength and efforts of public schools and already established institutions, local NGOs, social enterprises, and initiatives to build their capacity to create sustainable job opportunities through education and livelihood (training, internships / apprenticeships, and job placement) programs for youth and women.
To foster partnerships among Lebanese public schools, institutions, NGOs, social enterprises, and initiatives to
– promote collaboration among themselves.
– increase efficiency to attract international NGOs, donors, and other investors.
– build networks of organizations with common goals and related projects.
To support programs of economic empowerment that support Lebanese public schools, institutions, NGOs, social enterprises, and initiatives for youth and women.
Always giving a helping hand, Rajab Jubaili never let on exactly what he was doing, and how many families he was helping in his native Saida. It was only after his unexpected death that the extent of his charitable efforts came to light. In fact, the day before entering the hospital, Rajab was busy distributing funds to those in need. Without the benefit of a formal organization, he worked quietly behind the scenes, modest and private, leading by example.
CG Fund Co-Founders, Maher and Monica Jubaili, have been inspired by Maher’s father, Rajab and his Uncle Atef as well as Monica’s mother, Joan. Certainly not the only ones to inspire them, these three individuals did make the biggest impact on them. Living in Dubai and frustrated with the increasingly difficult situation in Lebanon, Maher and Monica knew they had to find a way to help.
