About Us

About Us

Bedayati is a social sector organization established in 2020. We work to empower marginalized youth in Lebanon, responding to their aspirations for change.


We champion an inclusive world of work, advocating an economy and society where everyone has the possibility to participate and make a difference. We believe that no one’s life journey should be diminished because of lack of access to education or decent work opportunities.


Our mission is to act on social inclusion and to expand opportunities for marginalized youth in Lebanon. We provide skills training, personal development support and holistic employment services, addressing the barriers to employment that prevent youth from accessing sustainable work.

We partner with purpose-driven businesses and organizations to expand decent work opportunities and promote inclusive workplaces. Our Inclusive Employer Pledge invites employers to join a growing movement of Lebanese businesses who commit to help build a more inclusive and sustainable economy and society.

Our values at work


We seek to build strong relationships of trust with all our stakeholders, and are committed to integrity, accountability and transparency in our work.


We believe that in widening the circle towards more inclusive workplaces and communities, we walk each other to a brighter future.


We listen, learn, experiment and collaborate, and seek to be catalytic and bold in responding to the challenges we address.
