Educational Development projects
Based on the concept that education is the foundation of Sustainable Development in communities, CEMEDE aims to work closely with various educational organizations in order to create accessible education customized to the needs of diverse groups, specifically those who are excluded or marginalized from the mainstream educational systems. Education is the foundation of a promising future, and everyone in society has a right to benefit from it.

This includes training of elementary teachers and awareness conferences addressed to the general public on learning difficulties. Also extending support to the three centers for the early detection and treatment of studentís learning disabilities; in Beirut, Tripoli and Saida with a new center opening up (October 2012) in Zahle, Bekaa.
