General Information: 

Naba'a has been a registered independent NGO (License number 104/AD) since 2001, before when we were part of the program of Save the Children UK in Lebanon targeting Palestinian refugees. However, SC-UK is still today one important and valued program funder and partner of ours. Contributing to our 2009 income up to 1 127 544 USD, these furthermore include: AECID, ECHO, Netherlands Embassy, Karim Rida Said Foundation, MAP, Movement for Peace, Palestinian Group Solidarity, Save the Children Sweden, Terre des Hommes Italy or UNICEF. Our projects take place throughout all Lebanon within several communities within the Palestinian refugee camps and unregistered gatherings. Such an implantation requires a solid organization among our 74 employees, 12 of whom are actually local volunteers. Internal management structures and capacities are always being reviewed to be sure we properly meet our scope of actions and efficiently manage our integrated community approach.

Mission and Objectives: 

Following our vision of a society built on the respect of human rights, our mission is to empower local communities so as to uphold the rights of children living in Lebanon, for them to play an active role within their society and grow up in a safe environment. Following our core values of neutrality, participation, and transparency, we work on helping Palestinian refugees as well as Lebanese community to take control over the decisions affecting their lives while addressing collective needs. We aim to support children and youth who are the most at risk of dropping out from school and being neglected or mistreated in their community. We particularly focus on marginalized girls, who have restricted mobility and are being denied education, when they are not confronted with early marriages. We also try to increase women’s role in the community decision-making processes, regarding gender equality and children’s rights issues mostly.

Main Projects / Activities: 

Relying on our complementary Child Rights, Community Development, Advocacy, Inclusive Education, Capacity-Building and Emergency programs, we do this by: - Providing skills trainings, recreational activities, and after-school support - Working with teachers and parents to strengthen their understanding of children’s needs - Providing awareness-building workshops - Involving community agencies (e.g. vocational training centers, health centers, NGOs) to improve the services addressing children and youth. - Participating in local networks of NGOS, popular committees, and active groups involving local decision makers. - Using our experience to provide key service providers (such as UNRWA) with relevant advice. - Promoting women rights through national advocacy campaigns and regional initiatives. Our work is based on an integrated and participatory approach. Our management team regularly meets with field workers and project coordinators to discuss strengths and weaknesses of our running projects. We closely monitor our activities and regularly produce reports to our donors and partners.
