Working for understanding and peace in the Middle East

NECEF Sabeel Canada (formerly known as The Near East Cultural and Educational Foundation of Canada) was founded in 1984 by the late Dr. James Graff, professor of philosophy at the University of Toronto. NECEF Sabeel Canada is a volunteer based charitable organization with two broad defining objectives:

  • to promote a greater understanding in Canada of the history, culture and contemporary situation in the Middle East, focusing on the Arab World
  • to fund humanitarian, educational, development and health related projects both in the region and here at home NECEF is the first NGO founded in Canada to concern itself with education and human rights in and about the Middle East.
