By the end of 2020, LCCE empowered 120 men and women living in disadvantaged communities in Akkar, Wadi-khaled, Tripoli and Mount Lebanon on vocational skills to increase their chances to become economically independent. The capacity building projects funded by IRC livelihood program were implemented to respond specifically to vulnerable peoples’ needs. These projects present a space to gain knowledge, skills, and also provide moments for social cohesion and participation between participants from different nationalities.
This program has started in 2019. Despite the pandemic, 57 men and women benefited from capacity building sessions in 2019.
