In 2016, #MeWeSyria was officially launched with partners DARB, a Turkish non-governmental organization and Mobaderoon, a non-governmental organization in Lebanon. #MeWeIntl led more than 8 community trainings of trainers sessions in Lebanon to more than 30 Syrian facilitators from Mobaderoon’s network.
Similar to Turkey, additional specialized trainings offered skills-building on self-care, facilitation skills, and monitoring and evaluation. Thanks to more than 12 local Syrian facilitators trained by #MeWeIntl in Lebanon, including 2 Master Facilitators, and individual Syrian project managers, the #MeWeSyria program hosted by Mobaderoon has improved the communication skills and wellbeing of more than 800 refugees in Lebanon, including older women, mothers, and girls at women’s shelters.
Since 2016, #MeWeIntl has provided local refugee organizations with more than 250,000.00 USD in subgrants to support our community-led activities and trainings in the region.
