OUR IDEA

United Societies over Straits… USoS, is a nonprofit association, was granted the permission no# 1392 to practice its activities by the Lebanese Ministry Of Interior and Municipalities in 2019. But, it had been practicing its humanitarian and social activities several years before being working independently.

USoS has been established by a group of beneficent individuals, who had common attitudes and beliefs towards well known humanitarian, social and environmental issues within the MENA region.

The founders had noticed the increasing needs in society in many aspects of life, precisely, of the less fortunate communities affected by the surrounding conflicts, accompanied by slow economic development, and the increase of living cost.

And up above the mentioned issues, lies the unfairness in social traditions and law regulations concerning woman rights, and the violence against women, in particular, which has been a big concern for long.

More top crucial concerning matters such as children exploitation and education, social development and environmental issues along with other significant issues, altogether had formed the motivation factors for starting this project.

There arose the idea of establishing an -easy to reach- association (usos.org) which can achieve fairness, survival, protection, sustainability, social development, prosperity, and a do-good spirit spread in society, in order to reach and develop the core of society, which is the family, and therefore educating the woman who is the pillar of that family in most households.
