Twelve months that transformed the lives of many youths have been crowned, as Save the Children marked the success of the latest of its youth-focussed projects with a closing ceremony held at Bourj Hammoud Centre in the Lebanese capital Beirut.
In an atmosphere immersed in lively activities and creative ideas, the Arts and Crafts Exhibition for children was held by the Child Protection division at Save the Children Lebanon, at the Jdita informal settlement, the Bekaa Valley.
Save the Children’s Child Protection programme in Beirut held a week long positive parenting workshop to Iraqi women who have fled the conflict in their country and sought refuge in Lebanon.The Japan Platform (JPF) is funding this project to ensure that the desperation and recent vulnerability of newly displaced parents does not severely affect their relationship with their children.
The workshop elaborates on the goals that parents want to achieve with their children and the means to attain these goals through good means of communication, mutual respect, and trust.
