Founded in 1993 under the decree no. 400/AD, Al Younbouh is a non-residential center for the Education, Reeducation and Rehabilitation of individuals with intellectual and neuro-developmental disabilities, which mission is to improve the quality of life of individuals with special needs and ensure their dignified integration into society.
Based in Sahel Alma, Jounieh - Lebanon, our premises as well as our programs are adapted to the needs of our members. Our new reformed center is set to welcome children between 7 and 14 years of age, with light and mild retardation, in addition to our current, older members.
Al Younbouh programs are led by a multi-disciplinary team and work to meet each individual’s needs and developmental challenges on the educational, therapeutic and social levels. They include: Vocational Workshops, Educational Workshops, Supported Employment Program (Workplace Integration), Special Group Skills, Recreational Activities, and Year End Summer Camp.
With your kind contribution, we will be able to install a well-adapted playground which will provide our children with: a safe place to play and be physically active, a place for recreation and enjoyment, and for physical strength, coordination and balance.
A total amount of $13,700 is needed to make this project happen, and it includes: climbing playgrounds, wall-mounted games, a ball pool, a trampoline, scooters, and other items, in addition to safe rubber floor tiles, for the safety of our children.A playground for children with special needs is a must in our center, since unfortunately those children do not often have the chance to mingle with other children in our society. Playing and enjoying their time, will help them release the tension and stress that they hold inside, and therefore can be more flexible to acquire new developmental and educational skills in the specialized classrooms.
Please help us spread the word about our campaign in your surroundings by using Zoomaal share tools.
A big Thank You from the heart of Al Younbouh children!
