YASA - Youth Association for Social Awareness

The tragic death of Tarek Assi in 1994, a 19 year-old university student, led his friends to establish a club to his memory. Later, this club was registered as the Youth Association for Social Awareness (YASA) – a not for profit Non Governmental Organization – in Lebanon in 1996.
YASA aims at safety promotion and injury prevention, which is, achieved through public awareness campaigns.  Since its initiation in Lebanon, YASA has had cooperation and partnership with institutions, organizations and governmental bodies such as the Lebanese Army, Internal Security Forces, Civil Defense, Zeina Hauch Foundation, The Lebanese Association for School Safety Awareness – LASSA and others.
