ANERA: Students in Lebanon sew masks
Anera has retooled our programs in Lebanon to account for the bleaker job market and to meet immediate needs. And what is now one of the most in-demand items in Lebanon? Quality, reusable face masks that meet World Health Organization standards.
Given that need, with generous funding from Americares we launched a program to employ young people to produce face masks. The project provides young people in Lebanon with an opportunity to earn an income, while also providing marginalized families with washable face masks to help protect against the spread of the virus.
The program is a part of Anera's technical and vocational training courses in Lebanon meant to reach out of school youth. To learn more, visit our blog here: https://www.anera.org/stories/young-people-in-lebanon-make-masks-for-th…
