Lebanon

In Lebanon we work with people to build trust and address the concerns facing their country.

We bring together communities to support social stability and discuss peace and conflict issues. We support collaboration between authorities and communities. We also work with community leaders to build safer and more stable communities, and to reduce the risk of tensions among Lebanese communities as well as the spillover effects from the conflict in Syria.

Our work is important because without the support of influential community leaders, it will not be possible to build a lasting peace in Lebanon.

We have been working in Lebanon since 2009.
