Hayya Bina is a Lebanese civic initiative dedicated to offering a platform for moderate, liberal and independent voices, committed to resisting the culture of fear and intolerance. Our aim is to restore hope and opportunity to those currently underrepresented in Lebanese society through broadening networks, developing grassroots advocacy programs, and building coalitions of diverse activists. Born out of the turmoil of the 2005 parliamentary elections, our first campaign highlighted the right of citizens to participate in political life on the basis of civic values rather than sectarian belonging - a principle which continues to guide our work. Hayya Bina has programs that work with rural women, activists, independent political voices, clerics, and youth providing coaching, capacity building, networking and access to information and analysis.
