Swisscontact

Led by Swisscontact in Lebanon, the Tafawoq project aims to support 500 young Lebanese, Syrian, and Palestinian men and women with economic empowerment and market integration. The project offers a comprehensive coaching cycle designed to equip participants with essential skills for successful labor market integration.

Beyond individual capacity building, Tafawoq places an emphasis on enabling micro-, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) to access new markets, creating vital sources of income generation. Through tailor-made trainings and innovative business solutions – including the integration of digital tools – the project adeptly supports sectors such as construction, sustainable agriculture, and textile waste management.

Tafawoq’s strategic interventions also support the establishment of an employment office, further facilitating job matching and market access for participants. This approach not only fosters economic growth but also builds resilient communities by tapping into the potential of its youth and local businesses. Check out the video to learn more!

A home in Qalandiya, before and after restoration

RIWAQ

Since it was founded in 1991, RIWAQ has been stepping up to the crucial challenge of preserving Palestinian collective memory through projects that document and restore architectural heritage sites across the West Bank and Gaza.

One way the organization does that is through its annual “Warm Home” initiative, dedicated to supporting Palestinian families living in villages and towns by restoring and improving the living conditions in their homes. So far, RIWAQ has provided safe spaces for tens of families, and your donation this Ramadan would help it continue its mission to transform lives and homes.

Social Value International

Global capital flows are increasing climate change and inequality. But they don’t have to. SVI believes that a small change to international accounting standards would create a more sustainable world. They need your help to make this possible — please contribute to their “60 Seconds to Change the World” campaign by taking their 60-second survey (link below).

What type of returns do you want from your investments? Are financial returns the only things that matter? Should international accounting standards be updated so that the social, environmental, and financial returns are taken into account?

The aim of the campaign is to show that international accounting standards can evolve to reflect the growing interest in social and environmental returns, changing the calculation of profits to direct capital flows to companies that create social, environmental, and financial returns, and reducing climate change and social inequalities in the process.

Jordan River Foundation

Established in 1995, the Jordan River Foundation (JRF) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering Jordanian communities, particularly women and children. The organization is chaired by Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah.

Through its Community Empowerment Program, JRF will be conducting a job fair on March 25 in the Mafraq governorate to continue bridging the gap between beneficiaries and private-sector employers by facilitating job interviews and matching individuals with appropriate job and training opportunities. With a focus on vulnerable Jordanian and Syrian refugee youth, as well as household farmers, JRF has identified sectors such as agriculture, food processing, and industry as areas of potential employment. The event will provide a platform for individuals to explore employment prospects and enhance their livelihoods. If you would like to attend, follow the link below and fill in the form (in Arabic).
