Since 1976, AFEL is an association working for the protection, the education and the insertion of children growing upon a challenged family, children with nothing or nobody to look up to, children whose parents failed to raise in a loving environment. Often facing abuse, delinquency, struggling with learning and communication, AFEL’s children are on survival mode. Securing funds to sustain their education, protection, shelter, therapy, nutrition, health, is the biggest challenge.
Until today, AFEL has restored more than 5,000 children, giving entire generations the means to become autonomous and responsible adults.AFEL is the Winner of the Conflict Prevention and Peace Prize in Lebanon 2018, awarded by the Ghazal Foundation for Education, Research and Peace in Lebanon.
