With the support of the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM), AVSI sought to mitigate the health, social, and economic consequences of the COVID pandemic in Lebanon by launching a cash-for-work project in two of the most vulnerable regions in Lebanon – Marjayoun and Hasbaya. This temporary project, which ran for six months, gave vulnerable individuals, including both Syrian refugees and Lebanese nationals, the opportunity to generate income and improve their technical skills through a homemade face mask production workshop. The project also provided the participants with an increased feeling of safety as they had access to COVID protective equipment. AVSI is pleased to share that the project had tremendously positive results: out of 129 direct beneficiaries (93 refugees and 36 host community), 100% of beneficiaries reported feeling safer in regard to the COVID, 100% of women received cash assistance, 100% of the host community beneficiaries received cash assistance, and 96% of Syrian refugees received cash assistance. Lastly, 93% of vulnerable individuals improved their technical skills. These impressive results mean these impacted populations not only improved their household safety, but they also saw a long-term benefit to their economic livelihood: more cash flow, as well as skills to generate future economic opportunities. Thanks to the valuable contribution of PRM, we reached the desired targets for the cash-to-work project in Lebanon.
