Asmae is a French international solidarity NGO specialized in child development. Independent, non-religious and non-political, it is open to everyone.
Created in 1980 by Sister Emmanuelle following her experience with scavengers in Egypt’s slums, Asmae keeps on respecting its founder’s values and methods: listening and proximity, pragmatism, respect of the differences, professionalism and reciprocity.
Asmae’s action aims to support vulnerable children and their families through providing tailor-made and long lasting support to local stakeholders working on child education and protection.
ASMAE IN THE PHILIPPINES
Asmae has been working in the Philippines since 1989. It is currently supporting program intervention in partnership with local NGO and people’s organization on intervention to contribute to the improvement of children and families in street situations, intervention to promote inclusive and/or disability-sensitive early childhood development and education, and intervention to prevent and eradicate gender-based violence. All these interventions aim to achieve social integration of these marginalized groups of children and youth into our society.
Asmae is also actively participating in a different local and national network for, generally, the advancement of rights of every child and advocate, through improved governance, the provision of equitable opportunities for children at risk such as children in the street situations, children with disabilities and other difficult situations of children, to access quality fundamental services that will allow them to thrive fairly in the society.
