Projects and services at Hariri Foundation are founded on four pillars which reflect its vision, mission and objectives. Those pillars are inspired from the legacy of its founders, H.E. Rafic Hariri and H.E. Bahia Hariri, in state-building and sustainable human development.


Hariri Foundation recognizes the national state and its social, environmental, economic building blocks as an adaptive complex system. With complex interconnections and relationships in mind between the different elements of the system, we seek to design programs and policies that take a holistic approach to sustainable human development.
