Green Rooftops Growing Number and Beneficiaries Trainings

By Haneen Khaled | Program Coordinator

Rooftop Farming Beneficiary
Rooftop Farming Beneficiary

Today in Lebanon, people are hopeless and feel they endure a lot for a single people; financial crisis, unrest, pandemic and Beirut explosion that finished to put the country on its knees. For camps inhabitants, jobs are lost since a long time now, while less and less people can expect financial help from relatives living abroad, due to the Global pandemic issue which lets refugees worldwide in a dire situation and unable to help their relatives still in the Middle-East.

 

Giving inhabitants the opportunity to retrieve contact with earth, the natural and simple ways to grow crops and the ability to be self-sufficient became for Jafra Foundation a priority.

 

Through the Rooftop Farming project in Palestinian Camps, Jafra could, during the last months, improve the skills people need to master in order to grow sustainable farming projects. Training procedures and follow-up on families’ rooftops became regular. Check Nazmieh for example, she was having an empty rooftop and now she can eat from what she planted on it!

 

Very soon, the project will take a new level as we are planning to cooperate with an INGO to increase the number of Rooftop Farms in 3 different Palestinian camps of Lebanon. You can help the beneficiaries to go smoothly through winter by helping us providing them the material to create greenhouses to avoid flood and cold affecting their crops and livestock.
