Project Objectives Achieved!

Dear Peace Supporters,

we are very happy to inform you that, despite difficult circumstances, we have achieved the objectives for the first 3 years of our project, the period that was co-funded by the European Union. Kindly find below the results in numbers. We are currently writing a final project report as well as preparing a final project video, which we will share here once they are ready.

In the meantime, it is challenging to continue working in Lebanon because of the very difficult economic-social-political situation, which makes life very hard and uncertain for the populations we work with as well as impractical to organise activities. We stay in touch with our beneficiaries, keep providing ongoing support, complete the certification process of several new local trainers, and support their initiatives, while we prepare together with them for more expansive work once the situation in Lebanon improves. 

 

PS: the celebration champagne is sparkling juice ;)
