CSR in Action Lebanon 2012Register Here
Building on the success of the GBO 2011 and the newly born partnership with ESA, in 2012 the CSR in Action Program was implemented for the first time in Lebanon. The program gathered together 10 motivated university students who worked side-to-side with business practitioners to develop joint CSR strategies or founding the basis of future social enterprises. The participants worked intensively for one week and created a total of 5 projects that were all successfully piloted in the months following the training. The program was concluded with an award ceremony organized in the presence of the US Ambassador to Lebanon at the time, HE Maura Connelly.
7 initiatives came to life under the scope of the program, 2 of which are now established and well known social enterprises in Lebanon. These initiatives are Foodblessed and Women-2-Women addressing, respectively, food waste and women empowerment. Both organizations led the way for social transformation in Lebanon and inspired many more CSR Initiatives.
