For maximum impact, Achrafieh 2020 works independently as well as in collaboration with public and private entities. But at all times, the best interests of the neighborhood and the community always come first.
From the very start, our activities have resonated with Achrafieh’s residents and the NGO has gained traction. All our initiatives promote the credo of living together in dignity, integrity, and solidarity. People from all over Lebanon, young and old, have attended our entertaining cultural events that also support small local businesses in Achrafieh by giving them a platform to showcase their products and services. Our social activities advocate the rights of citizens, children, women, the elderly, people with special needs, the displaced, and the ailing. They also protect Beirut’s cultural and traditional heritage.
Reacting to the dire economic crisis and the aftermath of the tragic 4 August 2020 explosion, we now focus on assisting those living below the poverty line or in need of shelter and are playing an active role in the efforts to rebuild homes.
