This is a project to try and enable young Palestinians in the refugee camps to find a decent and reasonably paid job, something which is little short of a pipedream in Lebanon’s current climate.
The aim is to sponsor young people who have the ability, qualfications and aspirations to commit to a life project, whatever it may be, but lack the means to realize it.
Once you have acquired your professional qualifications the Odyssey to find a job begins. It is not easy for our young people, but for the Palestinians in Lebanon the situation is even more difficult given the unfavourable legal limitations imposed on foreigners, which anyone who follows our association will be all too familiar with.
The project will begin gradually. First, we have to examine the possibilities of a first identified beneficiary and then, in concert with the funds that we’ll collect from members, other organisations and various public fund-raising initiatives of which we’ll inform after the summer break, we will be able to look into other proposals.
