Saida center was opened in 1979 at the city entrance, then moved in 2016 to the poorest neighborhood of the city, serving a growing number of programs and projects in Saida, to answer the rising needs of the local community.
The center serves a wide region extending outside the city of Saida towards the east reaching Jezzine, north towards Wadi Zeina, Jadra, Rmeileh, Barja, and south reaching Zahrani, Ankoun, Tefahta, Baysariyeh, Adloun, Khrayeb, Arzi, Zrariyeh, Tyre, Bazouriyeh, Abassiyeh and Bourj Al Chamali.
The old city of Saida suffers from governmental neglect. It is one of the most marginalized Lebanese cities, with a deprived and sidelined population including also Syrian, Palestinian and Egyptian families.
Saida citizens work mainly in fishing, in addition to a good number of artisans with no protection or privileges from the government.
The region suffers from increasing unemployment, school dropouts, drug addiction, in addition to violence and exploitation of children and women.
Saida center focuses on empowering vulnerable women and youth through socio-economic projects in addition to education and child protection programs.
Head of Center: Raji Said.
