Habibi Association promotes social justice and socio-economic integration especially towards the most vulnerable and disadvantaged people and those who have been affected by conflict. Established in Italy in 2013, Habibi, which is recognized as a nongovernmental organization by the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation (AICS), operates in the Middle East: after an initial period of engagement in Palestine, particularly in Bethlehem with social-health projects supporting children with disabilities, Habibi is now very active in Jordan with projects targeting refugees and the most vulnerable, with special attention to the needs of women, children and people with disabilities, with the aim of supporting their social and economic integration. We are people, in Italy and Jordan, committed, with passion and solidarity, to building a more just world, where everyone can exercise their rights, develop their potential and have the means to build a more equitable future for themselves and the community where they live.
We want to stand by the most disadvantaged by growing a culture of encounter, because if our societies do not become inclusive for all, but only exclusive for some, this will lead to further imbalance and further conflict.
