“WHAT DEFENCE IN THIS FURY CAN BEAUTY OFFER? IT IS AS WEAK AS THE FLOWER”
Our scope of work & how we function
• Call for project proposals, open to cooperatives, small businesses, non-profit organizations and municipalities in Lebanon.
• Provision of funding, advice and support to grant recipients following a rigorous selection process.
• Direct provision of equipment and trainings to local groups to help them start or expand a business.
• A focus on economic development in order to improve the standard of living of individuals and their families and by that, the local socio-economic fabric.
• The association is initially financed by the own funds of its founding members. Apart from small structural costs incurred by the local team, all donations received will be used for the realization of projects, which will in turn contribute to the improvement of the Lebanese civil society.
AREAS OF INTERVENTION
• Artistic & Cultural Awakening
• Women Empowerment
• Agriculture & Food
• Environment Friendly Application
• Plants, Cosmetics & Natural Medicine
• Water & Irrigation
Having access to clean and healthy water in Lebanon is a dream, and it’s also a basic human need. Although the country is one of the richest countries in terms of water thanks to its mountains and rivers, it is yet not accessible to the majority of people. Developing projects who would use & distribute water sustainably in the country could improve drastically people’s quality of life, reduce importation and plastic wastes. Alissar will fund ethical and environmental projects related to water and irrigation.
• New Energies
• Advanced IT Applications
• Access for Information & Communication Technologies
