PUTTING OUR EXPERTISE TO WORK
WITH AND FOR THE COMMUNITY
The Education impact initiative works in partnership with school-based educators and community members towards transforming schools into spaces for learning that support all students to grow into successful healthy adults who can serve and lead in their communities. This partnership is enacted through a hub of volunteers where more than 60 experts offer support in areas for improvement deemed a priority by the school leadership team.
In collaboration with the Primary Healthcare Department of the MoPH, the Community Health initiative is working on a comprehensive plan for evaluating health services and assessing community healthcare needs in different communities; creating a new model for comprehensive healthcare services building on the existing MoPH Primary Healthcare program, that includes training of nurses and other healthcare professionals; while addressing emerging healthcare needs imposed by the pandemic, financial crises, and the Beirut blast.
The Beirut Blast destroyed tens of thousands of buildings and residential and commercial units releasing many unknown environmental hazards into the ecosystem. The Environmental Health impact initiative was established in partnership with a number of UN agencies, NGOs, and academic institutions. It aims to assess the impact of the Beirut Blast on the environmental ecosystem and the health, wellbeing, and livelihood of people in the affected communities and to develop evidence-based safety recommendations.
