Founded in Lebanon on September 2013, Min ila is a civil, independent and non-governmental organization that is determined to bring a positive change to the society through citizenship education.

The Vision

We envision a society with active, empowered and alerted citizens capable of creating a social change.

The Mission

Our mission is to empower citizens – especially the youth and marginalized – by fostering citizenship education, promoting a culture of social responsibility and nurturing an engagement to the nation.

The Objectives

Our main objective is to develop innovative content, tools and methodology for citizenship education through formal and non-formal education. We strive to build the concept of a “democratic citizenship” that is centered on the ideals of social justice, human rights, democracy, gender equality, accountability, transparency, solidarity, and civics. We are highly dedicated to raising awareness on political, economical, environmental, and social issues in order for citizens – especially the youth – to become responsible and engaged with the nation.


Our passion is revolved around the innovation of citizenship education and its learning processes. Our three programs – Formal and Non-Formal Education and an Employability and Vocational Program - are revolved around teaching our students a wide array of skills. Citizenship Education is a dedication that aims to teaching new skills, knowledge, and attitudes that are required to be an active, democratic, responsible and critical citizen. This is where we teach them how to tackle the formal and non-formal education sector through various different projects.

Formal Education

Within the Classroom

By proposing a new civic education curriculum for schools, we are creating an entirely new program that is highly interactive, innovational and inspiring for the students. This could lead them to learn how to be more aware, engaged and active in their respective communities.

Non-Formal Education

Outside the Classroom

Our projects are designed to enhance civic education skills and knowledge by promoting values such as human rights, democracy and intercultural dialogue through arts, sports, community initiatives, etc.

Employability and Vocational

Beyond the Classroom

In hopes of motivating and preparing the youth for the future, we are constantly working on several methods to give them the chance to enter the job market in development and humanitarian sectors by providing them with the job skills, life skill and technical skills.


Min ila is proudly governed by a Board of Directors that is elected every two years by our General Assembly. The rest of the team consists of our dedicated interns that always have an important role to play in the development of our organization. Supported by generous people who have become our partners, the team is the backbone of the organization that keeps us striving for more.
