Making the Inaccessible, Accessible. 

We share, translate and promote ideas that foster critical thinking, civil rights, science, pluralism, and more to ultimately bring to life a modern, pluralistic Middle East, led by the people of the region.

WHAT WE DO

Ideas Beyond Borders develops and implements international programs to empower individuals with knowledge often suppressed by authoritarian regimes and dictatorships.

We encourage youth and young adults to think critically about topics ranging from civil rights to science and reason, making inaccessible topics accessible and sparking curiosity.

We lay the groundwork for people to retain their cultural identities while questioning the status quo, pushing back against extremist narratives and disinformation propagated by state and non-state actors.

Ideas Beyond Borders isn't just a non-profit.

It's a movement.

We're partnered with youth and young adults across the region to make vital, but often banned ideas accessible to Arabic, Farsi, and Kurdish speakers everywhere. We certify and empower each of our translators, and work diligently to translate and distribute topics ranging from critical thinking, civil rights, science, and pluralism.

This project is exactly what the Arab world needs. Unfortunately, Arabic online content doesn't meet the level that Arab youth need. Thank you for your efforts.
