AMURT Lebanon Background

AMURT’s mission is to help improve the quality of life for the poor and disadvantaged people of the world, and those affected by calamity and conflict. It aims to assist individuals and communities to secure life’s necessities and to gain greater social and economic fulfillment, while honoring individuals’ customs, language, and religious beliefs.

AMURT Lebanon registered in 2012 as an independent charitable organization and is affiliated with the AMURT Global Network, headquartered in Washington, USA.

Since 2012, AMURT has been addressing the Syrian crisis and its effects, as well as hardships the Lebanese community is experiencing. Its programs have ranged from disaster relief and emergency response, to psychosocial support, diverse education programs, child protection, social stability, and is currently focusing on the livelihoods sector.

Holistic Preschool Education and Systemic and Psychosocial Support for Children

According to MEHE's Crisis Response Plan 2017-2020, AMURT in collaboration with Orienthelfer is launching a Community-Based Early Childhood Education project funded by BMZ Germany. The project aims to support children outside of school to transition into formal education by preparing them both academically and psychologically. AMURT is therefore opening space for 3 social workers to be part of the implementing team.
