WHO WE ARE
Asma Abou Ezzeddine Rasamny, of Lebanese origin, called Damascus home for over 18 years. The tragic situation in Syria is the biggest humanitarian crisis since World War II, leaving 14 million children in desperate need of support. In an aim to try and help in any way she could, Asma found herself engaged with a group of displaced refugees in northern Lebanon, which later developed into a project for “Education.”
"Malaak" was legally registered in 2012. "Malaak" has no religious or political bias.
Our Mission & Vision
Our mission is in educating “Syrian refugees displaced in Lebanon,” by creating a space that is healthy and happy. Malaak is dedicated to ending illiteracy in the camps through education, and innovative programs designed to empower families to achieve self-sufficiency. By filling these GAPS, we hope for a more promising future.
Hope makes dreams possible. Dreams motivate us to become more than we are. Families who have lost everything have lost hope as well. At the “Academic Center in Akkar” they recover their hope. They dream again. And they learn how to make their dreams reality.
How it all started
With nearly 2 million displaced refugees in Lebanon, the crisis became overwhelming with no plan of action for the millions. In an attempt to deliver basic humanitarian aid to informal settlements in Northern Lebanon, the cry for education grew louder and louder amongst the displaced and distraught. Fatigued they cried: “Our kids need to be in a learning environment, before it’s too late.”
