Fostering Growth: Nawaya's Business Synergies

Dear Friends,

Since 2016, The Nawaya Network, in partnership with UNICEF Lebanon, has been implementing the Generation of Innovation Leaders (GIL) entrepreneurship program across Beirut, Mount Lebanon, South Lebanon, and Nabatieh.

The GIL program equips youth with the skills to access the digital economy, fostering innovative, income-generating solutions for their communities. Its goal is to empower disadvantaged youth in Lebanon, enhancing their income-generation abilities and enabling them to become self-sustaining members of society.

Since its inception, the GIL program has trained 7,499 youth and launched or supported 1,219 MSMEs, 62% of which are female-led, generating $1,535,513 in revenue from 620 MSMEs.

In the past two years, The Nawaya Network has focused on creating business synergies among GIL-supported MSMEs. By connecting these businesses, they can benefit from each other’s products and services, fostering mutual growth and ensuring increased revenue.

We are thrilled to share a few testimonials from participating entrepreneurs who have thrived through these synergies:

Sara El Koussa, the founder of CancerCom, a support organization for cancer patients and their families says: “The business synergy initiative made it easy to have a new feature developed for our website. It also  helped me grow my business network and come up with new ideas!

Ralph Al Amil and Elie Daccache, co-founders of Go Med an app that optimizes healthcare for patients say: "We needed new features developed for our mobile app and were able to get them done on time, in a cost-efficient manner with the GIL Business Synergies.

Dalia Ayash, the founder of Mounet Dalia, a social enterprise that connets rural women who produce traditional Lebanese mouneh products to their markets says: I was looking for someone to develop the mobile application for my business and I found them through the GIL Business Synergies.

Hussein El Hajj, the co-founder of the Awfarli and Student Rise apps, and H-tech, says: "The business connections I was able to build through this initiative are a great source of revenue for my mobile app and web development business!

Thank you as always for your wonderful support!

Warm regards,

Zeina Saab
