About the Entrepreneurship project in Lebanon

Context

More than 1.5 million Syrian refugees have settled in Lebanon since the beginning of the Syrian conflict, only 1.2 million of which is registered by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. In addition of this migrant influx, Palestinians and Iraqis also cross their borders to join Lebanon. This causes a lot of pressure on the community: the unemployment rate in Lebanon is 27% and reaches 50% with the additional refugees communities.

The project

Positive Planet created an entrepreneurship programme dedicated to the refugees and the local population. This programme will benefit to 300 Lebanese and Syrian refugees youth, aged 18 to 35 years old. Financial education programmes and tailor-made trainings will help them create and develop their income generating activity.

The result

By creating their business, micro entrepreneurs generate income to support their family and improve their economic situation.
