Mission and objectives

A group of Lebanese from other countries choose to settle in the land of their ancestors and to promote social improvement of their compatriots. They launch PRODES, a Lebanese NGO founded in 1998 whose mission is to promote active, positive and responsible participation of citizens in Lebanese society, respecting their traditions, and ensuring greater availability of opportunities for personal and collective improvement. PRODES beneficiaries are preferably women and youth, as they play a particularly important role in the local planning and social mobilization process.

Among its areas of action can be found:

- Social actions, aimed to provide specific solutions to poverty and exclusion as well as to create among participants a sense of solidarity and commitment to social issues.
- Cultural activities in order to create spaces of reflection and creativity solutions to problems of the society.
- Support to adult women in the field of family life, children education and professional commitment.
- Professional training for women: in 2004, practice sessions on professional management and hospitality services have been formalized in the Conference Center Al Tilal. Moreover, PRODES promotes professional training courses in rural areas through the Women in Rural Lebanon Areas Network. After eight years of competent experience in the area of rural development and in the methodology of training women from rural environments, PRODES has launched the Institute of Management and Services in 2009.
