In brief : "Our mission is to provide a virtual room where women from different cultures come together for dialogue and understanding; where impoverishment gives way to empowerment; and where every woman is awakened to the other. This awakening benefits children, men, the earth and all beings.

We believe that when any woman shows up “as she is right now” -- with her authentic voice, personal story, and wisdom -- and when she is truly heard, a shift occurs both for the storyteller and for the listener. Within this shift lies the potential for relationships and the momentum of moving from inspiration to action."

Organisation Website : portail en langue francaise. En bref "L'AEP est une association à but non lucratif, oeuvrant pour le développement socio-économique dans le domaine de la micro finance.
En pleine guerre, dans la tourmente et la débâcle, alors que beaucoup de Libanais baissaient les bras, ces hommes et ces femmes ont été parmi ceux qui ont cru, espéré, osé.
Au lieu de recourir à la mendicité, occasionnelle ou régulière, voire aux armes, ils ont préféré prendre leurs responsabilités par leur travail."
