Purpose : AICA is seeking a “ Facilitator for evaluation and closing workshop ” working on Part-time

Referring to the expected results, the facilitator should be able to conduct and facilitate sessions online

The Alawite Islamic Charitable Association AICA , a non-profit non-governmental organization located
mainly in Jabal Mohsen – Tripoli and Akkar, registered under the decree No. 4500/1950 , was founded in
1950 in order to claim the rights of communities through development and social
projects as well as Health care and medical services.
AICA projects and activities aim to mitigate all forms of discrimination towards civil Rights access
(medical, health, education, work opportunities, or any other additional required support), raise
individual and collective awareness, mainstream protection and disseminate risks prevention. The
intervention strategy consists of holistic and sustainable community development, Advocacy and Peace
Building, education and training, primary health care and medical services, religious services.
Solidarity project is a pilot program, supported by USAID BALADI CAP, targeting marginalized
populations of Tripoli (Jabal Mohsen, Tebbaneh and Quobbeh) which aims to reintegrate young working
children (YWC) aged 6-11 into the education system through a dual-track approach: providing
educational and psycho-social support for 30 YWC, complemented by a dedicated program for their
parents/caregivers in skills building, counseling and livelihoods support.
Solidarity project will implement a “Learning by Doing” approach, exclusively supported by “Makers
Hub/Genius Kid”, where youngsters, through hands-on activities, discover their dexterity skills and
develop them while learning about technology, manufacturing, and open source tools. Established in
2014, they have won numerous awards for their innovative approach to introducing a new generation to
different technologies through hands-on projects that bring together what is taught theoretically in
schools with how things are done practically. They focus on STEAM (science, technology, engineering,
arts and mathematics) as well as woodworking, 3D design/printing and have five centers across
Lebanon, including a woodworking workshop.
In response to this challenge and in line with AICA’s vision and mission, AICA will pilot this “Solidarity”
project utilizing the “4R approach” (recruitment, rehabilitation, reintegration and raising-awareness)
1. Enhance the capacities of AICA staff to deliver programs for vulnerable youth.
2. Engage 30 young working children in a three-month program of daily classes including
psycho-social support (STEAM), basic literacy and numeracy (BLN), and STEAM programs.
3. Provide 30 caregivers of young working children trainees with vocational training (VT)
on home health care and handcrafts and enroll them in an internship program.
4. Provide case management/family rehabilitation counseling services aimed at
reintegration of young working children into school and their caregivers into the job market.
5. Raise awareness on child rights and education through a social media campaign.
In order to respond to the reality of COVID-19, AICA will practice extra hygiene measures and safe
physical distancing in all its program activities by (1) utilizing technology platforms for meetings that can
be done remotely and (2) dividing participants into smaller groups to reduce the number of people
gathering at one time within each classroom. AICA’s Center, located between Tebbeneh and Jabal
Mohsen, has nine classrooms, enough space for them to manage the five parallel classes for children
and the separate classes for the caregivers. Additionally, AICA’s child protection and confidentiality
protocols will guide the work.
