Get To Know No Label!

No Label NGO, is the first Lebanese anti-bullying non-profit in the region founded in August 2015. We are the most ambitious anti-bullying organization you’ll ever meet!

To date, the entire MENA suffers from lack of awareness in bullying and other child development issues which we tackle as an NGO.

“An individual should grow up in a safe environment, feeling accepted and not judged. But with the current stigmas, the society is not doing a great job with that.”

A lot of young people have come forward and discussed how bullying affected their lives, whether they were in its direct circle or they knew someone who had to go through this.

No Label raises awareness on bullying, the importance of bullying prevention and its techniques through developing programs and curriculums that create bully free zones, anywhere!

Our Mission:

1- No Label is dedicated to govern all educational institutions and stakeholders with endless knowledge towards bullying prevention (and related issues), creating bully free zones and bringing up individuality among all.

2- Our NGO aims to shed light on the importance of mental health in developmental psychology among all individuals.

3- We are passionate about making a change in our society and the lives of individuals all over Lebanon by constantly delivering value to our stakeholders.

Our vision:

 To become the pioneer in bullying prevention in Lebanon and the MENA.

So What Is Bullying?

Bullying is an unwanted form of repetitive aggressive behavior that is done by one person, or a group of people, intended to hurt an individual. This behavior usually involves an imbalance of power that is either real or perceived.

- In school bullying prevention programs decrease bullying by 25% (McCallion and Feder, 2013)
