DARE The Adventure: Apply

Application Process

March – May

You can apply now.

May – July

Logistics preparation
(visa application, vaccinations… etc.)


The current Caravan left Lebanon last October due to the political events. After consultation with the Lebanese Order of Malta and our Security Council, the group will return to Beirut in March to devote itself to our friends there.

The same applies to the upcoming Caravan: if the situation in Lebanon is not stable enough to continue the service there, we willl offer an alternative program (e.g. in Romania). However, our main focus will always remain Lebanon.

Interview Process

Once you have submitted your application and are accepted to be interviewed you will join a four step Process. Our goal is to help you make up your mind if joining the CARAVAN Project is the right answer to your expectations and current circumstances.

  • The first interview will take place in Germany, ideally, in-person.
  • As we believe that taking care of others and taking care of yourself go hand-in-hand, you will be having a confidential one-to-one with a psychologist who will help you discern if this opportunity is right for you.
  • Since your parents or legal guardian will be sponsoring you financially, we will have a phone call with them to double-check that they agree to the program.
  • The second and last interview will take place remotely with the Order of Malta in Lebanon.

If at any stage, we/you can see that participation is not possible you will not be admitted to the next step in the process. If you complete the process, we will get back to you within 5 days.
We will not be able to take in anyone without the full interview process. The last interviews will be offered in May if there is still space in the team. Joining after the start of the program (Preparation time in Germany) is not possible.
