The project in Tripoli, Lebanon, is entering a new phase!

Highlight of the last months was the Youth Peace Ambassadors Training with 25 young youth from violence-affected backgrounds. Syrian and Lebanese, boys and girls from different schools and areas in Tripoli mingled together and became a strong bonded group over the 7 day duration of the training. They learned and deepened their practice of powerful stress and trauma relief techniques, learnt new social and emotional skills to deal with other people and challenging situations, engaged in different forms of art to explore their selves and give expression to their inner world, analysed their living contexts for the causes and drivers of violence, designed peacebuilding projects to reduce the violence in their lives and the lives of other children, they ate, played and celebrated together. Watch this youth to see which changes they are bringing about in themselves and their city, now and in the future!

Another highlight is the sucess of our newly trained trainers from Syria, who are now giving Stress Relief and Resilience workshops on a massive scale for children of all backgrounds in Tripoli. After having experienced IAHV's Professional Care Program, practiced regularly at home and in group follow up sessions, followed the Training of Trainers, engaged actively in assisting and observing, and practiced almost daily in delivering supervised SRR workshops, they have grown into very appreciated, strong, sensitive and reliable IAHV team members, who have expanded the capacity of our team to reach out to more children in need. 

With the start of Ramadan this week, everything in Tripoli now lives and moves at another pace for a few weeks, but the enthusiasm and commitment of our team keeps the flame burning.

Dear Supporters,

We are very glad to share below updates on the project 

In Lebanon, a strong basis and good awareness about the project have been created through the implementation of SRR workshops, THRH trainings, HRE and PC for children and communities in the most in need areas of Tripoli.

Through the SRR workshops, 5,048 children outside schools, in free private schools, governmental and unofficial schools, have learned basic stress relief and resilience techniques.

The impact is especially strong in the unofficial Syrian schools, where also parents and teachers learn stress management techniques in the HRE and PC programs to be able to support the children better. 

Based on the positive results of last year, we have once again received official permission from the Ministry of Education to provide SRR workshops in governmental schools in 2018-2019.

Given the political situation and corruption in Lebanon, our team considers this a major achievement in itself. 

165 most in need children, including a large group from a youth shelter, have benefited from the THRH training. The very first Peace Ambassadors from different high schools in Tripoli are developing their peacebuilding projects. Building on these foundational programs, we will focus in Y3 on the capacity building programs YAVAP and ToT, strengthened with tailored mentoring and support for the program participants. Through the combination of all project activities in few key areas of Tripoli, we aim to create a strong synergised impact for the respective communities.
