52 women and their families (around 200 people). Indirect beneficiaries were 15,000 inhabitants of Jezzine who benefit from increased tourism

Jezzine village has witnessed high levels of both internal and external emigration due to the economic situation in the area. However, it is known for its natural beauty and homemade products, and is a popular tourist area. The Association of Agricultural Services requested funds to establish a center for women in Jezzine to prepare and sell homemade traditional products including labneh, keshek, zaatar, vinegar and pickles. SEAL’s funds covered the costs of equipment (including juicers, refrigerators, jars, sterilizing machine, oven and tables) to prepare and package these products.

This project was implemented in memory of Dr. Nabil Husami.
