Supporting sustainable refugee livelihoods in Jordan and Lebanon
The goal of this project is to enhance sustainable livelihoods of Syrian refugees living in Lebanon and Jordan. In Jordan, entrepreneurship courses targeting Syrian refugees and vulnerable local populations are carried out, followed by providing selected participants with grants necessary to start a sustainable business and providing them with extensive follow-up. In Lebanon, vocational training courses in three sectors (carpentry, sewing and knitting) targeting vulnerable Syrian refugees are provided, followed by establishment of a sustainable social enterprise which provides sustainable employment also after the end of the project. As the result of the project, 180 families have enhanced their livelihoods in a sustainable manner.
