"Flying Gardens" project entitles gardening rooftops of buildings in the most underprivileged areas of Tripoli, Tabbaneh. The rooftops will be planted with edible plants and vegetables in order to make residents of the building self-sufficient. It will also include a safe playing space for children of the building instead of having them spend times on the streets and in unsafe surroundings. Environment-friendly and recycled materials will used to rehabilitate the rooftop. The rehabilitated rooftop will also allow us to hold regular cultural, youth dialogue and social inclusion programs as well as self-motivation workshops.

We already started with a pilot whereby we rehabilitated a building rooftop in Tabbaneh. The residents’ feedback was overwhelmingly welcoming, but unfortunately we could not continue for financial reasons. After doing the necessary needs assessment and financial feasibility, we concluded that we are in need of $30,000 to fully equip 6 rooftops in the neighborhood with children games, books, a reading/cultural space made from recycled and reused material, painting and drawing, planting edible fruits and vegetables that building residents can make use of, and most importantly to implement safety measures such as high fences and roofing.

Why this project: Tabbaneh is one of the most deprived communities in Lebanon as a whole. Studies conducted by the ESCWA over the past couple of years, revealed that some 87 percent of households in the Tabbaneh area are considered deprived, and out of these, about 52 percent live in extreme deprivation. Poverty and neglect have long marked Tabbaneh and are major contributing factors to the ongoing cycle of violence there. Tabbaneh is characterized by a high concentration of children and youth, but it is also well-known for high school dropout and high youth unemployment rates, standing at roughly 50% and 40% respectively. With such difficulties, come different forms of social misbehaviors these children and youth engage in to “kill time” such as drugs and alcohol abuse and alarming acts of violence. Therefore, childhood is almost a non-existent phase for majority of residents there. Instead of having a healthy childhood, children and youth often find themselves spending their time on the streets and being exposed to deadly dangers.

Need behind it: Having been actively involved in youth-led initiatives benefitting Tripoli, and particularly Tabbaneh, we chose to take a step toward ameliorating those deadly consequences by creating more and more green and safe playing spaces on rooftops of Tabbaneh buildings.

How will it benefit the community: The project will provide a safe playing green space for children, a cultural space for youth where regular youth dialogue and social inclusion programs as well as self-motivation workshops will be held, and it will also make building residents self-sufficient by planting edible plants and vegetables. Rooftops will ultimately be turned into green, safe, and cultural open spaces for children, youth and also adults of the buildings. Building committees will be created to ensure sustainability and proper maintenance of the newly rehabilitated green space.

The crowd-funding campaign continues ZOOMAAL until the beginning of June and aims to fully mobilize an amount of $30,000 by the aforementioned date. To that end, the youth volunteers are disseminating awareness on the goals of their campaign through social media networks and also through providing motivational in-kind prizes for individual donors, and diversified sponsorship packages for corporate/organizational donors.

Flying Gardens project aims at transforming Bab Al Tabbaneh's rooftops, that had witnessed fierce rounds of clashes over the past 3 years, into green social spaces benefiting children, youth, and residents of buildings in general.

Solar Power to Arab Women

Meet Daad and all the amazing women of the "Cooperative for agricultural production and manufacturing" in South Lebanon. They have joined forces to work on grassroots food production sold all over Lebanon and provide much needed financial support to their families. Unfortunately, as most Lebanese, the cooperative suffers from chronic electricity problems which renders most of their electricity powered machines obsolete. This results in a smaller and less diverse production as well as a lower income for the cooperative. To add insult to injury, the lack of electricity is compensated by physically stressful manual activities which requires them to stand daily for long hours.

The Solution Comes from the Sun!

Daad and the women of the cooperative live in one of the sunniest region on earth where solar energy has tremendous potential. Indeed, Lebanon has more than 300 sunny days per year and solar energy can fill all the electricity demand of the country. The sun is a free and renewable source of energy. A solar energy system has the capacity to fill the electricity supply gap of the cooperative and decrease its dependence on inefficient, polluting and expensive electricity sources such as private generators. That would mean more production, more income and no more back pain! The powerful impact that solar energy could have to transform the lives of these extraordinary women, their villages and communities whose vibrant existence is a testament of strength and ability.  It is a land of heroes, each fighting in their own unique and distinct ways to create a better tomorrow for their communities and the planet.

The Solarization Project

The solarization of the women cooperative center will start with an energy audit that will identify its energy consumption. Then, a set of energy efficiency measures to reduce energy consumption such as lighting retrofit and piping insulation will be implemented. Finally, a solar energy system will be installed on the roof of the Cooperative. 

A month ago Greenpeace started its preparation for this project with a  goal is to train a small cohort of individuals who can then mentor others, educate key decision makers and embark on their own entrepreneurial projects. 12 young people, Lebanese, Palestinian and Syrian from the area, trained by Greenpeace, will participate in the installation of the solar energy system. The training itself is a variation on a model Greenpeace used in places as diverse as Rhodes, Greece, Raleigh, North Carolina and in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo. We have seen the excitement on people’s faces as they realize that this technology is not beyond their reach.  And for these Young people from the south of Lebanon, this is the best way for them to put in practice their learnings and give back to the community that has supported them all these years!

They Are Counting on You!

Each contribution to this project is an additional step towards a true energy independency for this cooperative, the hard working women and their community. And they are counting on You!

The successful completion of this project will be how the adoption of solar and renewable resources can contribute to allowing these brave women to take control of their own lives. Most importantly, You as donors will empower these communities to move their work forward, giving them the technical tools that they need to create a better, cleaner future.

This project has been designed with the local communities under the umbrella of Greenpeace'swork in the Arab world. Through trainings and demonstrations, education and creative communications, Greenpeace campaigners, researchers and volunteers will work alongside community members and promote the amazing resources of this rich and evocative region. Greenpeace's ambition is to catalyze the solarization of the Arab World through training, examples of community driven projects, and improving policy work to enable many other communities to follow.

This can only be done with your precious support!

This fragile Earth deserves a voice. It needs Action. It needs You!
