Asmae is a French, non-religious, non political organization, created in 1980 by Sister Emmanuelle. Our main mission is the development of underprivileged children. Asmae helps them to choose and to build their own way towards autonomy, in their own environment.
We support educational, sanitary and psychosocial activities for underprivileged children from Burkina-Faso, Egypt, India, Lebanon, Madagascar, Mali, Philippines and France. Our philosophy is to work closely and in partnership with local organizations. Asmae always considers the economical, cultural, social and familial contexts in its programs, trying to find sustainable solutions to the problems.
Asmae is active in Lebanon since 1987.
