The mission of ILDES is to curb migration, alleviate poverty and contribute to the sustainable development of the people and the land. ILDES especially supports displaced people after their return to the place of origin and provides services in the fields of micro credit, health care, training and employment and the reestablishment of Lebanese mores of conviviality and strengthening of social peace.
Vision: The vision of ILDES is that social cohesion is the basis of any durable social and economic development. No social cohesion can be attained if citizens and groups remain estranged from their places of origin and remain outsiders in their own country. ILDES also believes that civil society has an important role to play, alongside government policies, in the reconstruction and rehabilitation of the social, physical and human components of Lebanese society.
Goals:- Curb the emigration and brain drain,- Alleviate poverty,- Create job opportunities,- Promote the sustainable development of rural regions,- Support the olive sector,- Empower women in their quest for social and economic wellbeing,- Improve social and health wellbeing.

The selection and hiring of personnel is carried by public announcement and circulation of job descriptions.
