“Healthy We Grow” is the second phase of the agro humanitarian project by the Order of Malta.
It aims to provide more than 1,000 farmers with natural, human, and physical assets to pursue their farming activities.
This project is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) in partnership with Malteser International, and with the implementing support of Fondation Saradar.
Within this project, summer packs have been delivered in Yaroun.
Within the framework of the Beirut Relief Program, we have finished the rehabilitation works in Al Zawrak Disability Hub. The building was damaged after the Beirut blast, and could not welcome the children who live there anymore.
Al Zawrak Disability Hub, which will stand tall again, provides psychotherapy support, speech and language therapy, job aid and education to different age groups.
‘Healthy, We grow’: the Order of Malta and Fondation Saradar in solidarity with Lebanon’s small farmers
In a bid to support small farmers and the local economy, boost community health, as well as strengthen food security by improving food availability and accessibly, the Order of Malta in partnership with Fondation Saradar, has launched an Agro-humanitarian project under the slogan of “Healthy, We Grow.”
The project is providing 1.2 million seedlings of winter crops to 350 small farmers. The areas include Khaldiya in Zgharta, Al Qobayat, Ras Baalbek, Barqa, Deir Al-Ahmar in Northern Bekaa and Yaroun in South Lebanon.
The project aims to empower local communities by supporting the agricultural sector, targeting small farmers and helping them pursue their farming activities. Farmers are coached to adopt climate smart agricultural methods in order to ensure healthy domestic production while protecting natural resources.
In an effort to overcome the severe economic crisis and following the horrific blast of August 4th, Fondation Saradar has launched the Beirut Relief Program.
The Beirut Relief Program aims at repairing and rehabilitating the homes of less fortunate people who live in the area that was destroyed by the blast.
Our teams of volunteers are dedicating their time and sharing their professional knowledge and expertise to help people in need. They are making a meaningful impact in the daily lives of many families that have been left in a dire situation.
Despite the summer recess, the caravan pursued its art activities and itinerary. After introducing art initiation sessions in schools during the academic year, the “ Traveling Art® ” program delivered courses to young students at the french cultural center, “Institut Français du Liban”, Beirut, from 2 July to 16 August 2019.
“Traveling Art®” is an outreach program focusing on art initiation addressed to schools.
It is also catered by Fondation Saradar Mobile School. This caravan serves as an exhibition facility to display Lebanese artists’ works highlighted by the program, as well as works created by students. During the pilot phase, the project will first target schools in Greater Beirut and the cazas of Metn and Kesrewane.
The mobile art learning concept provides:
- Beneficiaries with a first of its kind opportunity to be introduced and educated to various art forms.
- School teachers with a unique art tutoring experience, hands-on learning and communicating practice to follow up on Fondation Saradar program delivered within the caravan; hence, ensuring the sustainability of this initiative.
- Academic performance, should institutions be interested in integrating this art learning program as part of their school curriculum.
- Exposure to Artists through various means of information gathered and media tools supplied by the Saradar Collection.
Because preserving our artistic heritage is paramount, Fondation Saradar is launching an unprecedented art program in schools, the “Traveling Art®” project, to initiate young generations to the understanding and appreciation of Lebanese modern and contemporary art, in a very innovative and interactive way, in classrooms and inside the caravan.
