She is the co-founder of MMKN NGO (MMKN which means possible in Arabic) a non-governmental organization established in 2010 with a vision to create socially responsible citizens based on the following model: MMKN’s education program targets vulnerable students aged 13 to 15 attending public schools across the Lebanese territory through its academic remedial support sessions to minimize school dropouts in partnership with the volunteering programs of the private universities (the American University of Beirut- Lebanese American University – Balamand University – Hygazian University – Antonine University) as well as the Lebanese University.

MMKN strives towards the enhancement of community dynamics, building a better understanding of true citizenship and governance, and aims to disseminate knowledge, culture, and social awareness among the various Lebanese communities.
