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.
We envision a society with active, empowered and alerted citizens capable of creating a social change.
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.
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, economic, 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 the Youth Employability 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 ProgramBy 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. See More
Informal Education ProgramOur projects are designed to enhance citizenship education skills and knowledge by promoting values such as human rights, democracy and intercultural dialogue through arts, sports, community initiatives, etc. See More
Youth Employability ProgramIn 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.
