Save the Children empowers Lebanese organizations to make sustainable change in communities’ lives

“When we first established 'Al Tafawwok wal Saadah', we didn’t have much experience. We had problems on the financial, technical, managerial and financial levels. Our mission and vision weren’t clear enough and the staff members’ roles weren’t organized. However, our volunteering spirit and neutrality made us progress and prove ourselves to Save the Children Lebanon (SCL) ”, says Fayek Shehadeh, project coordinator in the organization.
