A GOOD BOOK SHOULD CHANGE THE WORLD FOR THE BETTER BEYOND THE LAST PAGE.
Meike Ziervogel, Publisher, Peirene Press
We donate 50p from the sale of each book to Basmeh & Zeitooneh.
Basmeh & Zeitooneh (The Smile & The Olive) is a Lebanese-registered NGO. It was established in 2012 in response to the Syrian refugee crisis. B&Z aims to create opportunities for refugees to move beyond being victims of conflict and help them to become empowered individuals who one day will return to their own country to rebuild their society. Today the organization is managing nine community centres in the region: seven in Lebanon and two in Turkey.
From 2016 – 2017 Peirene Press donated 50p from the sale of each book to Counterpoints Arts.
Counterpoints Arts is a charity that promotes the creative arts by and about refugees and migrants in the UK.
‘We are living in a time of human displacement. We need bold and imaginative interventions to help us make sense of migration. And who better to do this than artists who are engaging with this issue.’ Almir Koldzic and Áine O’Brien, Directors, Counterpoints Arts
