Safadi Foundation USA

Safadi Foundation USA (SF USA) is a 501 (c) 3 tax-exempt nonprofit charitable organization that was established in Washington, DC in 2008 to advance strategic support for Lebanon’s human development. Since 1985, the Safadi Foundation in Lebanon (a separate and independent organization from the U.S. entity), with its major base of operations, then in Tripoli and now throughout the country has been fostering innovative strategies to rebuild the lives of Lebanese citizens in the aftermath of civil-war and the growing challenges resulting from the current refugee crisis. The Foundation’s activities in Lebanon in the areas of education, job training, rural development and sustainable agriculture, culture and sports, women’s rights and youth development have been vital elements that have helped ameliorate the negative affects of conflict and poverty in an effort to build a more secure future for Lebanese citizens.
