SHiFT is a social innovation hub leading the transformation of post-conflict and/or marginalised zones towards peaceful and prosperous communities. It brings people together and bridges differences through building capacities, raising awareness, creating opportunities, promoting success models and mentoring. 

SHiFT has a community-center on one of the previous conflict frontlines in Qobbeh, Tripoli.  The centre provides a neutral space for people to meet and participate in activities.

SHiFT has three main programs that especially target persons from post-conflict areas (Qobbeh, Jabal Mohsen, Bab Al-Tabbeneh). We strive to create opportunities for persons who due to different reasons are vulnerable, for example youth who due to economic marginalisation face limited opportunities, persons whose ability to work is affected by disability and women who face challenges to secure sustainable livelihoods due to gender-based constraints. The programs are:

Tatweer program: providing business development support and in-kind grants to existing and new nano, micro and small businesses.

Tamteen program: providing training, coaching, mentoring and job placement services to individuals.

Tasaloh program: facilitating/incubating peace and reconciliation initiatives. 

Our centre has also a social kitchen, a rooftop space, a media lab (Shadda) and a design lab (7orfa) that offer modern facilities for start-ups, artists, designers and young media professionals. We also offer these spaces for rent to other organisations, in addition to the 10 training/meeting rooms of different sizes that can be rented as co-working spaces or for meetings, trainings and events.
