Sawa Association for Development
The Sawa Foundation for Development is dedicated to the educational and social development of the residents of Bekaa; especially women, children, and the underprivileged. Established in 2006, Sawa focuses on environmental issues, gender-based violence, child protection, child marriage, human rights, and domestic violence.
Sawa is a member of Girls Not Brides, an organization that fights against child marriage, as well as the Anna Lindh Foundation, UNEP, Y-Peer, and the Soliya Organization. Sawa has also worked with Syrian refugees in Lebanon since 2012 on awareness against early child marriage, gender-based violence, and illiteracy.
