Challenge

Lebanon's social structure is threatened by the massive economic crisis facing the country since 3 years now, due to a a sharp depreciation in the local currency's value, affecting every industry and field. The crisis has brutally hit citizens, immigrants & stateless causing an increase in violence among societies mainly against woman & children in addition to increase of crimes committed by under-age and increase of giving birth to children without any legal marriage or documents registrations.

Solution

AICA's protection team with support of the legal unit consisting of lawyers and social workers, will work on advocacy & raising awareness to help woman and children understand their rights as well as provide support and follow up on different topics and problems from marriage to divorce to registration forms & identification papers leading to advocating their basic rights and standings by their side against injustice.

Long-Term Impact

The potential long term impact is getting closer to achieving basic rights of humanity especially in marginalized areas in Lebanon. The sense of security and safety is something AICA works on achieving.
