Openness Development Association (ODA)

Openness Development Association (ODA) is a Community Oriented, Inclusive, Neutral and Independent Non-Governmental Organization. We support vulnerable Youth and Children to become agent of change in their community. ODA has been running Youth and Children-led programs focused on Sustainable Development in Education, Protection, Livelihood and Social stability since 2016.

ODA has a strong field presence in North Lebanon with offices and centers in Halba, Cheikh Taba, Tal Hayat, Borj Al Arab, Menieh and Mina Region.

ODA works closely with its partners to implement relief and development for refugees and vulnerable communities in the fields of Basic Needs, Education, Child Protection and Livelihoods.

We provide in particular, high-quality non-formal education and psychological support in safe environments to vulnerable out-of-school children, including the most vulnerable Syrian refugee children.
