EU4WE’s main objective is to promote equality between men and women in Lebanon. The project’s specific objectives are to reduce gender-based violence though women empowerment and to enhance institutional mechanisms working towards gender equality.


EU4WE works towards enhancing the economic empowerment of Lebanese women. In order to achieve this result, the project will provide technical support to  MSMEs and startups women-led and/or women-owned businesses in Lebanon by providing them with the necessary technical and financial support (a grant programme for selected women-led and/or women-owned enterprises) to scale up their business.
