The Various Services at Al Kafaat (Lebanon)

Al Kafaat means “abilities” in Arabic. The organization nurtures abilities on a number of levels as well as in numerous ways on each of those levels. Here are some of them:

Special Education:

Sheltered Employment:

Rehabilitation: (See also their assistance to cluster bomb victims: )

Business Support and Training for a resourceful transition (B.Start): 

Professional and University Education:

1. Catering 

2. Vocational/Technical Training (Industrial, Electronic, Automotive, Tourism, the Arts) 

3. University Education 


The Catering School’s director, Chef Ramzi, a member of the Al Kafaat Foundation Board of Trustees, put together a cookbook:

The Culinary Heritage of LEBANON

Here is a glowing review by Joumana Accad, on her website Taste of Beirut:

His father, Mr. Nadim Schwayri, the founder of Al Kafaat,  received the Antonian Gold Medal from his Eminence Metropoitan Philip for his work with people with special needs. Here’s the story, with pictures: 

As a former Protestant Evangelical Christian who once assumed that the traditional Christians in the more ancient homelands of the Faith were not very lively in the application of their Christian faith, I see now how wrong I was. I see it in my Parish, the warmth and hospitality of the cradle Orthodox Christians. I am greatly humbled, knowing that I myself am, as St. Ignatius of Antioch wrote, seeking himself to escape the condition, by martyrdom,  mostly a ghost- a man of words, lacking depth.

Lord have mercy! Lead me into the land of uprightness, comprehensive in my faith, my life, my deeds,  as Your servants at Al Kafaat are comprehensive in their efforts.
