Aie Serve, a youth-based organization, was founded on February 23, 2007 with the goal of spreading love and acceptance via increasing awareness and education. The word “Aie” is a Japanese word pronounced as “I” and means “Love”, so the name of group is Love and Serve or I Serve.
The idea came due to the aftermath of July War on Lebanon and the sharp polarization of the Lebanese youth. A group of friends gathered and started brainstorming ways of tackling this issue and agreed that the 3 basic values that are missing in Lebanon are Love, Tolerance and Respect. Loving others for who they are and not which political background or sect they are from, tolerating differences and considering them the seeds of diversity and respecting others' point of views and beliefs no matter what.
Afterward, the group started gathering more ideas and people and tried to organize themselves little at a time while focusing on serving their surrounding and society at large.
