Naba'a is a non-profit Lebanese organization which works with Palestinian and Lebanese communities. We aim at creating an environment in which children and youth can develop and live in harmony regardless of their religion, sex and nationality. We work to empower local communities and to enable their members to uphold their rights and to build a better future. Our Vision Nabaa’s vision is a society built on the respect of human rights and one in which individuals are able to take control of the decisions affecting their lives and to address collective needs. Our Mission Naba’a mission is to empower the local communities in order for them to uphold the rights of children and youth and enable them to play an active and healthy role within their society. Our Core Values Neutrality – we are not affiliated to any political or religious constituency. Equity and equality – we believe that our beneficiaries should have the same opportunities regardless of gender, religion, race, nationality or disability. Participation – we encourage the active participation of all the members of the community, because we believe that this is the only way to guarantee the success and sustainability of our projects. Protection – we believe children are the future of our society and for this reason it is fundamental for them to be protected and grow up in a safe and inclusive environment. Transparency and accountability – we closely monitor every project and we are committed to guarantee the highest level of accountability to our beneficiaries, partners and donors. Our History Naba’a used to be part of Save the Children-UK mission in Lebanon, but after its withdrawal from the country in 2001, our local management team decided to continue working to implement community projects as an independent, registered Lebanese organization. Over the years we have established new networks with local, regional and international partners. Our Strategy Naba'a aims to support young children who at most at risk of violence and neglect in the communities to provide them with opportunities to develop their confidence and to grow up in a safer more inclusive environment. We aim to support children and youth who are at risk of dropping out from school and living in particularly hard circumstances and to help them realize their potential. We aim to work with local communities, to build the capacity of those communities to take a more coordinated and inclusive approach to participatory decision-making and service provisions. We aim to influence the decisions of key policy makers and service providers who are responsible towards the Palestinian communities living in Lebanon to uphold the rights of Palestinian children, and to be accountable for providing appropriate services.see more
