Who we are
Co-opain is an NGO concerned with the housing crisis in Lebanon. Our main focus is to create a healthy and strong housing cooperative sector. Co-opain is supposed to be the major motivator, stimulator, educator and match maker that lead people into participating in Coops.
Coops are pillars to create & sustain development.
Co-opain is conceived to help citizen join their efforts and cooperate in order to achieve common goals and personal interests THROUGH COOPERATIVES.
Mission: Co-opain mission is to create responsible and educated citizens that cooperate to achieve goals instead of fighting and waiting government to fix their problems. They will be taught how they run their own interests effectively.
Values: Human dignity, solidarity and democracy. Co-opain insists on helping people stay away from charities, count on each other to improve their lives and run their needs in a democratic way.
A “CO-OPAIN” = PARTICIPANT IN A COOPERATIVE
