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!

R_2 Assessment of Health Care Centers

Professional Local Expert (Independent/Body)

 

Project: Improvement of Development Process and Local Governance in the Municipality of Tripoli

 

       I.            Introduction

The Municipality of Tripoli received on  the 15th of January 2016  a grant from the European Union (EU) to realize the project” Improvement of Development Process and Local Governance in the Municipality of Tripoli” over a period extending to 36 months. The overall objective of the project is to improve the institutional and operational contribution to governance and development process in the Municipality of Tripoli. The Specific objectives of the project are to improve access in Bab El Tabbane, Jabal Mohsen and El Ghouraba to basic and adequate social services on a sustainable basis. All three communities will benefit from a positive impact on different levels especially on Health, Education, Job Creation and awareness levels. Five Expected results derive from the project.

 

    II.            The project

The project derives from four basic facts advanced by the Municipality of Tripoli:

  1. The local authority and civil society are in need for capacity building,
  2. Health is a fundamental human right and should be available to all people regardless of gender, social class, ethnicity and age,
  3. Job opportunities are very limited due to the deficiency of educational skills,
  4. Recreational activities allowing the cohesion of the dissimilar zones allow a better synergy.

The project aims at enhancing the Municipality of Tripoli's capacity to effectively deliver public services and in particular, responding to specific health problems affecting the population of the targeted area  like: 1) anemia, scabies and lice because of lack of hygiene; 2) diarrhea, malnutrition and typhoid due to water and vegetables pollution; 3) scoliosis due to high humidity levels; 4) flu because of lack of regular medical consultancies and because the near governmental hospital has no capacity to receive the enormous demand of consultations and health services. No need to mention here that some local NGOs are providing medical services to the patients, but mainly based on availability of services and sometimes based on political affiliations.

The project consists of upgrading the health services at the existing health care centers, through the procurement of services such as mammography, echo, and health care programs for woman and child. The echography machine in Jabal Mohsen health care center (Al Zahraa) should be renewed. An assessment of the needs of the Hariri Health Centre should be carried so that the center meet the norms of MOPH thus allowing the renewal of the contract between this center and MOPH under the norms requested by the latter.

In addition, the project consists in conducting an awareness campaign in close collaboration with the existing health care centers and active participation of the existing schools in the targeted areas to promote the concept of hygiene in the deprived areas and disseminate a new strategy to tackle the problem of overcrowding of solid waste raised recently at national level, by sorting the waste from the households. The women will be involved in this approach as they are the main target and owner of this strategy. The health care centers as well as the community center will be the platform to disseminate the information, knowledge and necessary tools to address that issue. Also Awareness campaigns in health care and of drugs addiction should be implemented in coordination with the Ministry of Social Affairs and Ministry of Public Health.

An activity-based committee will be created and approved by the Tripoli Municipal council to involve all stakeholders working in the health field including the Ministry of Public Health and Ministry of Social Affairs to define the needs, elaborate the health care awareness program aimed at enhancing the services provided, and ensure the sustainability of results. The involvement of the two ministries in this activity-based committee will guarantee the provision of all necessary authorizations to manage and operate the centers properly and ensure their sustainability.

 

 III.            Tasks
