Khan El Askar Project

A total of 120 participants, aged 10 to 24, got the chance to participate in and benefit from the Khan El Askar Children and Youth Development Project in Tripoli during 2016, launched by INJAZ Lebanon in partnership with UTOPIA organization, and Souk El Tayeb, which addressed the women development component of the project.

Bearing age in mind, the children were not only offered educational programs, but they also got to enjoy a range of recreational and handicraft activities;  as for the youth group, aged 15 to 24, they benefitted from a series of employability and entrepreneurial programs, in addition to English and computer literacy courses. This project, funded by the World Bank, is part of the Cultural Heritage and Urban Development Project implemented by Lebanon’s Council for Development and Reconstruction.
