About CARE

Consultant Advocacy for Remedial Education

CARE is a Lebanese NGO started in 2010 as a group of volunteers worked with children and young adults with special needs. CARE Helps teenagers and young adults achieve their utmost potential to become responsible, contributing and independent citizens regardless of their individual abilities through social and professional integration.

Vision & Mission

Support children and young adults of ages 12 to 21 years with special needs such as Down syndrome, Fragile X, Autism, developmental delay and behavioral disorders. Through professional and social integration, CARE helps these students achieve their potential to become responsible, productive and independent regardless of their individual abilities or financial situation.

Our Actions

Due to the lack of specialized services, CARE is recognized with the aim to empower students through specialized education, vocational training and engagement in recreational activities to improve their psychological well-being, in addition to supporting their livelihood opportunities.


To help achieve our goal, we work with a team of specialists
