About Adyan

Adyan, Foundation for diversity, solidarity and human dignity, works locally, regionally and internationally for pluralism, inclusive citizenship, community resilience, and spiritual solidarity, through homegrown solutions in education, media, policymaking, and intercultural and interreligious relations.

Adyan is registered in Lebanon as a non-profit and non-governmental organization (NGO), under registration number 1103 by a ministerial decree dated 18 September 2008.



In 2007, Adyan launched the Alwan program in Lebanon. The two-year program consists of after school clubs for Lebanese students in Grades 10 and 11 (age 15 to 17). In place of societal – and often inherited – sectarianism, ignorance, prejudice and wounded memories, Alwan provides opportunities for discussion, critical thinking, and new experiences. Over the past 17 years, Alwan has trained over 6,000 young change-makers – from diverse faith and geographical backgrounds across Lebanon.

In the current version of the program, and after its evaluation by an external evaluator, the program will be updated, and will also be contextualized for France and for Iraq, in collaboration with experts from both countries.
