Short description:
The Lebanese Center for active Citizenship (LCAC) is a non-profit, nonpartisan organization working to support and strengthen democratic values and practices through citizen participation, and through promoting openness and accountability in government.
Since the beginning of its work, LCAC has carried out projects exclusively funded by international donors or through self-financing. All the staff members working in the organization are not affiliated with any political or religious entities. The organization is also keen to employ staff with different backgrounds, regionally and gender-wise.
Their stakeholders are citizens in Tripoli and North Lebanon, especially the youth. The organization focuses on promoting basic democratic values: citizen engagement, anti-corruption and the rule of law.
In September 2012, LCAC began a program on raising public awareness on the right to access public information and allow project beneficiaries to practice what they learn through Al Muwaten, launching a social media campaign, and advocating to local decision-makers. This one-year program is funded by the USAID.
