Blue Mission’s main goal is to support the educational achievements of children and youth in the community by operating after-school and out-of-school programs that provide homework support and workshops. The scope of Blue Mission’s education assistance work will expand after Syrian crisis and the arrival of refugees in Lebanon. Blue Mission will provide educational support to the refugees who settled in the Bekaa Valley, Tripoli, Akkar, and around South Lebanon.
We believe in engaging the children through activities designed to entertain while also cultivating a generation committed to peace. Children should participate in interactive workshops on a range of topics that include gender equality, early marriage, environmental consciousness, and the ramifications of child labor. Adopting art therapy as a modality and promoting civic engagement as a vehicle for self-expression and a means of promoting self-worth. Fundamentally, we believe that programs should convey to youth their role as critical actors in the improvement of their society and as protectors of human rights, both locally and globally.
Providing psychosocial support to children to help them alleviate pain from stress and psychological pressure and equip them with the tools to become resilient is one of our goals. We also intend to provide awareness sessions to youth and parents on topics that include the psychological implication of child labor, constructive discipline and conflict resolution. Blue Mission will implement initiatives in Palestinian refugee camps to equip families with the education and support needed to better care for their children and to increase awareness about Autism in the Palestinian refugee community.
Blue Mission Organization provides adequate medical and mental health services to the aided population. Such services include medications, health evaluations, monthly checkups and distinctive kinds of psychotherapy. Our goal is to assist the majority of the vulnerable population in Lebanon, for no individual deserves the neglect of a basic universal human right: an adequate standard of living. Despite not having an annual targeted goal, we try our best to reach out and cater to the Southern and BML region.
Since 2002, Blue Mission has been a prominent woman-led organization to aid the impoverished and vulnerable population. Gender inequality has been a prevalent phenomenon, especially in the Eastern Mediterranean. As such, one of the main pillars of our foundation heavily revolves around gender nondiscrimination and egalitarianism. We guarantee gender equality throughout our diverse staff and exclusive women empowerment themes in our projects.
Starting in 2017, Blue Mission partnered with Steenmedia in the OUR LIFE AND WISHES program to give Syrian, Lebanese and Palestinian children from schools and shelters in Saida, the opportunity to express themselves through designing and publishing books about their past, their vision of the future, and their aspirations.
We offer a safe hub for all our staff and beneficiaries as a mean to encourage the right of free expression. Simply put, Blue Mission is a home where people can go on with their daily lives without fear of possible injury, violence, discrimination and discomfort. A cooperative effort is carried out by our workers on a constant basis; such efforts include, but are not limited to, awareness sessions, workshops, certified training and social activities concerning the preservation of a secure, independent space for expression.
Blue Mission ensures our staff and volunteers are always designated to secure locations throughout their fieldtrips and regional missions; we prioritize the safety and wellbeing of all our members. We study the area beforehand and offer protective measures and services as well. This guarantees peak efficiency of our projects as well as long-lasting results to all beneficiaries.
Blue Mission partners with national and international NGOs to establish a capacity building program on gender and good governance. Our projects rooted in the belief that human development necessitates the empowerment of women. The aim of these projects is to ensure municipal officials receive training on gender and development, good governance (accountability, transparency, rule of law), inclusive governance, and municipal law.
Blue Mission has provided training on mental health treatment strategies to partner NGOs that have worked with Blue Mission in implementing psychosocial support projects throughout Lebanon. Blue Mission partnered with UNRWA to offer training to teachers and school administrators on how to nurture a supportive, inclusive, and caring learning environment for children.
Blue Mission deeply believes in the importance of peace and tranquility for all, which is why all staff members, workers and volunteers go through extensive trainings for protective measures. Although we do not offer direct protection services, we cooperate with other local and international organizations responsible for violent behavior and that is through developing the social workers’ abilities in the organizations, universities, and schools through training courses.
