ESDU’S RDED Project Kicks Off Cash for Work Activities

​​ESDU and its partners are providing cash-for-work opportunities and on-site training for 590 beneficiaries from 28 entities including MSMEs, small-scale farmers, and cooperatives within the framework of the project Reducing the Direct Economic Downturn (RDED) Impact on Vulnerable Communities in Lebanon

This project, implemented by ACTED Lebanon in partnership with ESDU and the UNDP Lebanon through funds KfW (banking group) from Germany, empowers participants from the South and Bekaa with skills that will enable them to establish sustainable, economically viable futures. One of the most significant challenges faced by MSME's, cooperatives and small-scale farmers is the increased cost of production and the soaring prices of production and processing materials. 

To alleviate the financial burden, RDED provides technical, material, and financial support that enables its beneficiaries to generate income, expand production, and continue producing food for their communities during these economically unstable times.
