Who are WE?
BromوKhdom is a social campaign that was launched by Leila and Louloua Bachachi, USJ students, as part of the social campaigning school and competition, hosted by the European Leadership and Debate Academy (elda).
First, let us lead you through the birth of our initiative. In Summer 2021, we closely studied our community before choosing the topic of our campaign. It remained clear to us that the MENA region as a whole, and Lebanon in particular, is passing through hardships that are blocking our way towards building a better future. After giving it some careful thought, we believed it was up to us to help each other outgrow this situation. BromوKhom was therefore born to prove that the determination and feeling of belonging of the youth is the only fuel to change.
The aim behind our initiative is to increase volunteering acts, more precisely, to offer help and expect nothing in return. Our core values are kindness, integrity and empathy, while our slogan is “Make a habit of neighborly help.”
Who is ELDA?

What is our SHORT-TERM MISSION?
We are currently providing the informational support needed to better the emotional state of the people by uploading fair content on our Instagram platform @BromwKhdom.
In parallel, we are holding calls for action in order to reach out to potential volunteers.
Lastly, we are hereby announcing our readiness to guide the youth along their community service journey, by putting our expertise and connections to work.
We trust in our goals to align with those of university students into building a healthier community.
This is why we are writing to you.
