ACSAUVEL, civil association for the safeguard of the human being in Lebanon, is a non-profit humanitarian association that is recognized by the Lebanese Government under N. 127 dated 19/10/1979.
The first goal of our association is to develop the autonomy and social integration of every person that attends our center without any racial, political, or religious discrimination. Our association is currently in charge of 70 mentally challenged children and adults. We offer them specialized education until they attain the age of 18 years, and at that stage, they move on to our workshops section to learn skills at a professional level. Their main activities are: pottery, wicker workshop, sewing, cooking, and mosaic.
Our center was built and equipped during the war thanks to the generosity and the support of many international organizations such as: World Vision International, Misereor, MissionPontificale. Since then ACSAUVEL received support from the Embassies of France, England, Germany, Canada, Japan, and the USAID. Our head quarters are in Tamish, near Champville School in the Metn area.
Once a year, all of those registered in ACSAUVEL, benefit free of charge from the professional examination of there health by two doctors. A follow-up is assured when needed. This project was put in place thanks to the generosity of the municipal clinic of BEIT EL CHAAR
