Arcenciel - Lebanon
Humanitarian and Civic Services - 2010
Arcenciel is an apolitical Lebanese non-profit organization committed to assisting those living on the margins of society. Established in 1985, Arcenciel strives to sustain long-term development in three key areas: environmental (preservation of natural resources), social (safeguarding Lebanese pluralism) and economic (creating autonomy through financial independence). Its tripartite strategy covers: field work - community rehabilitation based on identifying and evaluating people’s needs; referral centers offering specialized services, and finally, a public program and policy unit that services and supports the first two components of this strategy.
