Project Description: Supporting Lebanon ’s Immediate Social Recovery Services

The project will focus on reducing vulnerabilities of groups who are identified to be significantly impacted by Lebanon’s enduring social, economic, and political fragility:

(i) survivors of Gender-Based Violence (SGBV); (ii) those suffering from deteriorated psycho-social wellbeing; (iii) and/or those facing limitations related to being a person with disabilities and older persons. The project adopts a holistic approach with a cross-cutting focus on various vulnerable groups, including women, girls, youth, migrants, refugees, internally displaced people, and host communities. This comprehensive strategy reflects a commitment to addressing multiple and intersecting vulnerabilities within the target populations. Supporting Lebanon ’s Immediate Social Recovery Services interventions will entail providing grant financing directly to a selected number of NGOs, to enable them to provide social services to reduce vulnerabilities in these groups.
