Mission and objectives

KAFA (enough) Violence & Exploitation is a feminist, secular, Lebanese, non-profit, non-governmental civil society organization seeking to create a society that is free of social, economic and legal patriarchal structures that discriminate against women.

Our focus areas are:

3) Child protection, particularly from sexual abuse and family violence.
