1 – Ruwwad Al Tanmeya Organization Overview

Ruwwad Al-Tanmeya is a regional non-profit community development organization that works with disenfranchised communities through education, youth volunteerism and grassroots organizing. Our approach encompasses an array of programs and projects that, together, strengthen initiative and facilitate redress to problems prioritized by members of the community. Three main programs anchor Ruwwad: Child Development, Youth Organizing and Community Support. Three basic values shape every program or activity at Ruwwad Al-Tanmeya: secularism, diversity, and equity.


2 – Project description


This project proposes a three-pronged approach to support clients from economically vulnerable communities in Tripoli.

Under the first track, 45 men and women from Bab Al Tabbaneh and Jabal Mohsen will be selected to engage in cash for work activities: they will produce and package 8,040 daily meals that will be delivered to children enrolled in two education centers in the north of Lebanon, over three cycles of two months each.

Under the second track, 50 youths will be selected to receive technical training on three topics, over three cycles. This track will start with a market study to determine market needs and therefore decide which topics to select for the technical trainings. Once the decision is made on the training topics, a 60-hour technical training will be delivered. Clients will also receive Master skills training, including life skills and PSS. Once done, of the 50 clients, 20 will be selected to be placed in apprenticeships according to their performance and feedback from trainers. In addition, 10 youths will be selected from among Ruwwad’s scholars network to be placed in apprenticeships as well.

Finally, under the third track, based on trainers’ feedback and team assessment, 25 clients will be selected from the second track to be enrolled in entrepreneurial training. This will include BDS training, followed by 2 hours of one-on-one coaching to help clients draw up a personalized simplified business plan. They will then be scored according to the simplified business plans, and 10 clients will receive cash micro-grants.
