Selected Projects

Aitannit’s Waste Water Treatment Plant

In the face of persistent power shortages in Lebanon, the need for renewable energy solutions is only growing bigger. As part of the RISE2030 initiative, a team of 30 women installed a PV solar system providing Aitannit’s wastewater treatment plant with renewable energy.

The plant converts household wastewater into clean and usable water for hydropower generation and water irrigation for large areas around the Qaraoun lake.

The project created 30 green job opportunities, in addition to on-site training, that increased the participants’ chances of accessing the labor market.

Waste Treatment And Disposal Facility In Jeb Jannine

As part of the RISE2030 initiative, a team of 10 community members installed a PV solar system providing Jeb Jannine’s Waste Treatment And Disposal Facility with renewable energy.

Qaraoun Material Recovery Facility

RISE2030 community members were trained and educated to design and install an on-grid solar photovoltaic system that would cover 100% of the facility’s daily need for power. Qaroun Material Recovery Facility is a model for sustainable facilities, reducing waste volume, promoting circular economy, and running on solar.

This is powered by a community of newly-skilled labor of young women and men, ready to hit the solar market!

Sohmor Solar Tree

RISE2030 community members implemented the first solar tree in Lebanon!

The team was involved in various other tasks, such as cleaning, grading, trimming, and planting trees in Sohmor Park. They also executed an ecotourism trail between Qaraoun and Sohmor Garden in partnership with LRI.

The projects were funded by the German Government in partnership with Traunstein District and GIZ.

WCFN – Women Cooperatives and Farmers Support Network

RISE2030 helps female-led small businesses and women in the cooperatives prepare and sell their rural processed food through the women’s association of the town. The project supports the organization and its mission of promoting rural development and empowering local female businesses and individuals, by means of generating diversified income and employment opportunities. When successful, processing at the village level can create an enhanced quality of life for villagers because of greater prosperity and improved health and nutrition. The initiative also supports local farmers and creates sustainable job opportunities.

In collaboration with ESDU, Ardi Ardak , GIZ, and LLWB more than 100 women benefited from capacity-building opportunities, employment programs, solar systems, and seeds distribution.

WCFN works on empowering women farmers and cooperatives that work in rural areas through :

  • Capacity building
  • Networking events
  • Micro business support and mentoring
  • SME support
