Résumé partiel
The project will enhance youth engagement through activities that would i) promote social stability and conflict resolution ; and ii) improve their employability (skills-training, youth entrepreneurship, and job placement initiatives). Together these two sets of activities will foster positive interactions between Lebanese and Syrian youth and create livelihood opportunities. ILO component on Know About Business (KAB) programme contributes towards the creation of an enterprise culture by introducing and promoting awareness among young people on the opportunities and challenges pertaining to choosing self-employment as a potential career option. The component seeks to enhance social stability by using joint entrepreneurship classrooms to increase mutual trust and understanding among enrolled Syrian and Lebanese youth in addition to proposing a positive alternative to their potential participation in conflict situations or engagement. This course will encourage youth to choose self-employment and will promote joint ventures among Lebanese and Syrians. This approach is to be considered a pilot in the Lebanon context. Given Lebanon’s legal framework, the start-ups will be developed jointly by both Lebanese and Syrians, but will be solely owned by Lebanese. It is hoped that this approach can both empower Syrian youth to pursue similar activities once back in Syria and promote business linkages across borders with Lebanese young entrepreneurs.
