15 years ago when we asked ourselves how can we make things better? How can we make a positive change in our society and our environment? How to empower children, youth and women & any vulnerable groups in the society in Lebanon?
For more than a decade, Al-Midan accomplished over 200 small, medium and large projects in the areas of health, food security, ecology, tourism, autism, green growth, livelihoods, rural development, child and youth protection, women empowerment, clean water, environment, green energy, eco-tourism, education, poverty alleviation, governance, and emergency aid, among others to the different people groups regardless of their religions, ethnicities, age, and gender.
We believe in the grass root approach. We believe progress happens by bringing people together from all walks of citizens, local leaders, NGOs, municipalities, private sector, who have the drive and the influence to make positive changes and have a clear respect for the common good and human dignity.
We have implemented highly successful, innovative programs: Ehdeniyat, Cinemaiyat, Christmas by the lake, North Autism Center and the North Center for Diagnosis and Intervention, and many others.
Now we are living in a new era, in the 4th industrial revolution age where the challenges on the local, regional and the international levels are becoming more challenging and much more complex. So now more than ever We as Lebanese, need to cooperate, to think and work collectively & try to reshape our future & help create a more inclusive world, with sustainable growth & development, and continuously leading with empathy & positivity.
All that wouldn’t be possible without the hardworking team who truly love their homeland, their heritage, and their community. It is only together that we can thrive and overcome every obstacle no matter how hard it is or how impossible it seems.
“Each one of us is born to make a difference. We are seeds in this life, and if planted in the right environment and nourished properly, will become fruitful trees that give their fruit and shadow to those who are in need” Mrs. Rima stated.
