In the framework of the Women's Economic Participation project, ESDU will conduct various training sessions and introduce sustainable practices to upscale the Nebras Complex operations in Khirbet Rouha and facilitate potential employment opportunities for women. Associated with Dar Al Aytam Al Islamiya, the purpose of the Nebras Complex is to host, feed, and educate approximately 230 children.
FAFS signed an MoU with Nebras with the intent to ensure the food security of their students using FAFS' expertise. Constructed on a total area of 100 dunums, the complex is allocated for various agricultural purposes. ESDU plans to establish a two-in-one demo plot that will provide WEP beneficiaries with opportunities for hands-on experience in applying the knowledge acquired in sustainable agriculture practices and agro-food processing. The demo plot will address different pillars of the circular economy, providing training on regenerative farming practices, renewable energy, greenhouse farming, and composting.
ESDU will also upgrade their community kitchen with a solar energy system. Women's Economic Participation is a UNDP Lebanon project funded by the Government of Canada and implemented in partnership between ACTED Lebanon, ESDU, DOT Lebanon and ABAAD.
