The campaign “This Christmas, help women in the Middle East to build their future”, supports the construction of the An Nawras Center, which offers opportunities for training, social participation and leadership of women in Lebanon, as well as the inclusion of Iraqi and Syrians refugee women.
An Nawras carries out programs to empower women and supports the family and youth as a strategy to create social structures of peace, coexistence and prosperity in the Middle East.
Women who participate in the project become promoters and protagonists of social change in favor of populations with development potential, in order to contribute to the improvement of the region. Some of the activities that it promotes are:
- Language school for refugees: University students dedicate their efforts to teach French and English to Iraqi refugees in Jounieh; for them it is a necessity once they arrive in the host countries.
- Educational activities for children in vulnerable situations.
- Social promotion activities in rural areas in summer.
- Collaboration with the municipalities in urban and ecological improvement projects.
Support for the campaign is an opportunity for change: it promotes citizenship and active social participation of women in favor of a more just, supportive and egalitarian society, improves the development of women in their personal sphere through leadership programs, and generates opportunities for women’s employment through training programs.
It contributes, in this way, to improving the social recognition of women through their participation in economic life.
An Nawras is an initiative of the Lebanese organization PRODES.
