The Imam Sadr Foundation (ISF) is a local non-profit, non-governmental association, ISF has historically focused on improving access of the poor to their basic rights in social, health and educational services. It also has led efforts to promote tolerance and interaction between communities and religions.The Foundation is championing the development and empowering women in Lebanon, continuously raising the ceiling of their potential through evolving and innovative social services. We envisage a world free of ignorance, poverty, disease and conflict where each individual is invited to participate in the development of their own communities and enjoy equal rights regardless of their faith, gender or any other differences.
Education is one of the major pillars of ISF’s current developmental programs.  While pre-school, elementary and vocational education is directly provided by ISF, secondary and university education is ensured through the public education sector.  The ISF Nursing School has enabled hundreds of graduates to find gainful employment and, hence, become economically independent.  Other vocational training programs designed to meet market needs have scored similar success.The Health Department focuses on relatively remote areas. Mobile clinics and six dispensaries serve the most deprived population of the former frontline villages.
ISF’s provisions for orphans and educational programs have helped to decrease deeply-rooted social and economic problems, such as family violence, absolute poverty, and dysfunctional families.Since its inception in the early sixties, the ISF has demonstrated commitment and involvement in addressing the short and long-term needs of women in relation to rights to education, health care and employment.  The ISF’s direct interventions in this respect have been in the specific areas of literacy and education and care to orphans and children from ultra-poor families.
ISF strives to foster and encourage understanding and interaction between communities and religions.  As such, the Foundation has organized various inter-community events and has facilitated dialogue between people with differing views and stances.
