2016-2017 Social Initiative 77 youths of Lebanese, Palestinian, Iraqi and Syrian nationalities participated in the 5 Khebz w Meleh groups that were established in various areas in Lebanon. Each group designed and implemented 2 social actions tackling diverse topics.
It’s very obvious that Christian and Muslim youth care about each other. They are planning for a trip together on a day off. In the first couple of sessions, there was a sense of tension and rejection, it was clear to see. Now, in today’s session, the two groups have formed a new group, without either group losing its identity. Respect is clearly shown in addition to care. –KwM Facilitator from Saida/Maghdoushe
