Kevin Awkar

Project Manager FNF Lebanon and Syria

Short vita

In June 2023, I embarked on a new chapter of my career by joining the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom - Lebanon as Project Manager. With over 5 years of experience in nonprofit management and political coordination, I led programs in various organizations. Notably, I managed the office of Lebanese presidential candidate MP Michel Moawad.

Equipped with a Master's degree in Middle Eastern Studies from the esteemed Holy Spirit University of Kaslik (USEK), and a Bachelor's degree in Political Science from the same institution, I am constantly driven to apply my knowledge to tackle complex real-world issues.

My journey with FNF commenced through the Level Up Leadership Program (LULP) in partnership with the USEK Model United Nations Chapter, an initiative I proudly founded and chaired. This impact-learning accelerator brought together over 50 young leaders, featuring nine comprehensive training sessions and a simulation focused on advancing Global Goal 16 of the United Nations' sustainable development goals.

As I embrace my role at FNF, I am excited to create positive change and shape a better future. I am confident that we will make a lasting impact on the lives of individuals and communities in Lebanon and beyond!
