Our vision – Making dreams come true

One House for all Generations – Acsauvel prepares for the future

For the past five years, Mrs. Nabila Fares has been leading Acsauvel into a new area. With her vision, inspiration, and trust – against all odds and hardship – Nabila Fares has paved the way for a fundamental transformation of Acsauvel.

This transformation into a “One House for all Generations” aims at providing a loving, nurturing, and stimulating environment for children and adults of all ages with intellectual challenges.  Acsauvel is a place that fosters personal strength, enabling friendship and promoting self-reliance.  We want Acsauvel to always be a home and a partner in life for its “children”.


Acsauvel welcomes interns to contribute in their training during their studies.
The major universities we work with are: the Lebanese University (government), Saint Joseph University (USJ) Notre Dame University (NDU), and the Holy Spirit University Kaslik (USEK).

Our Projects

Acsauvel is now committed to a period of renewal and invigoration after having reached the mature of 37 years 1979 – 2016.

We have decided to build two new floors in our establishment to provide more opportunities for our children who are under 5 years old, those who are still at the pre-school stage (early care).

Our goal is for these young children to become members of the family of Acsauvel that would provide them with the appropriate, necessary and professional care and protection.

The first new floor will contain dormitories, protected workshops, library, computer room and a fully equipped theater.

The 2nd floor will be disposed as a shelter that accommodates older people with special needs who do not have a system of continued care or support.

Our Volunteers

  • In the kitchen: a group of women is responsible in the manufacturing of delicious pastry products that are put on sale to benefit Acsauvel.
  • In the pottery workshop: volunteers make, exhibit and sell their unique products for the benefit of Acsauvel.
  • In the educational center: Volunteers that works directly with our children: animation and games.
