The Qudorat Project sought to enhance the scope and effectiveness of Lebanese community-based organizations (CBOs) through increasing public awareness of CBO contributions to Lebanese society. This was accomplished by improving institutional capabilities, encouraging local financial investment in economic development, promoting regulatory reforms, and providing support and financial incentives for more business-oriented approaches to CBO revenue-generating projects and charitable activities.
IABC assisted NGO managers in the mechanics of cost recovery, internal controls, and portfolio management. Advisors also provided help with strategic planning and operations expansions. Working in three governorates—Akkar, Bikaa and South—with over 40 CBOs, IABC increased market shares of local firms meeting the demand of the growing CBO industry. To support the CBO industry, the project awarded grants to revenue-generating projects, to support job creation, enhance livelihoods, and support CBO services. Project grants resulted in 260 direct jobs.

Through this 2-year project, IABC worked with Lebanese community-based organizations (CBOs) in low-income neighborhoods in Tripoli, Lebanon’s second largest city. The aim was to address problems arising in from endemic poverty and the city’s recent influx of newcomers– both Lebanese relocating from other parts of the country and refugees from the conflict in Syria.
IABC addressed these difficulties primarily by providing technical training and financial support to develop the capacities of our target CBOs to provide relief aid, social services, and psycho-social support to impoverished members of their communities. IABC provided humanitarian relief to 2,000 families (63 percent of which were Syrians) through 13 targeted relief distributions campaigns, as well as psychosocial support to 150 children. It also enhanced the organizational capacity of our 6 local partners, and increased coordination among Lebanese and Syrian community members through 3 sustainable community service projects.

Lebanese women’s business associations and NGOs play a crucial role in reducing gender gaps and increasing women’s participation in the development of their society. There are already many such organizations in the country, but due to limited resources and cultural norms against women’s professional training, most of them lack the financial, business, and management skills they would require to improve substantively the economic condition of their members. Business Management Capacity-Building for Women-Managed NGOs project addresses these knowledge gaps by providing training, mentorship, and technical assistance to participating female-run NGOs.
Each NGO received individually tailored instruction in cost accounting, business plan development, and other subjects that resulted in the development of strategic plans for each NGO. Follow-up assessments and exchange visits between participating NGOs have allowed them to learn from best practices. The first phase focused on women's associations in the cities of South.

They are often left empty and considered non-participating actors in the national development. This has brought a gaping vacuum in the development be that local and national levels. This calls for need to provide opportunity to the municipalities be visionary, creative and develop their skills to initiate, develop and manage development projects that will help address socio-economic needs.
Overall Workshop Objectives: The broad objective of the training was to provide opportunity to municipality members to develop their skills to enable them identify initiate projects within their immediate locality using local resources thereby assisting to address socio-economic needs

Teacher Training: Teachers are the single most important shapers of student learning. Emergencies place new and different kinds of demands on children, their communities and education systems as a whole. Training and support can help teachers respond to these pressures, cope with increased responsibilities, and ultimately see both themselves and their surroundings as a resource.
Importance of Teacher Training
+ To increase education provision by filling a shortage of available trained teachers.
+ To improve education quality by introducing active strategies to help children cope with the crisis.
+ Promoting new, effective ways of teaching and learning.
+ To promote peace and facilitate restoration by developing peace skills such as negotiation.
+ Building confidence and morale among teachers and students.
Uniqueness of Teacher Training in Emergency: Regardless of circumstance, good education is good education. The same is true of teaching – skills important for good teaching will still support good teaching during a crisis. However, emergencies affect children in ways that teachers may not have seen. Teachers need to be prepared for these new needs, which often mean expanding teaching skills beyond traditional methods. Workshops and other supports give opportunities for new and old teachers alike to gain fresh knowledge, strengthen skills, and practice new teaching methods.
Forms of Training: When deciding how training should be delivered and over what period, the following options are possibilities to consider:
+ Introductory course (active learning) for new teachers
+ Advanced workshops for experienced teachers on specialized topics (Advanced active learning)
+ Training all teachers on Classroom Management and Remedial Plans
+ Training “Education Coordinators” to mentor or train other teachers
