The union of Families in Beirut and under the auspices of Bahiya Hariri met with the UNDP ( UNITED NATIONS DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM) to evaluate previous projects and to try to lay down a protocol for future collaboration that aims to support families and empower them to play their supposed roles in their communities.
when this protocol is signed between the UNDP and the union of Families in Beirut, it will be distributed among the various families to read and be discussed.
Each family should have at least 100 registeed members to qualify, and should give the names of two young people who have the time to be active with the UNDP representatives on behalf of the family .
The UNDP will not be handing money over unless the family has a definite project outlined and studied . for example our family needs a place to meet, right now our representatives are meeting in Mrs. Samira Medawar’s house for discussion and planning of activities and gatherings, but to activate the Medawar association properly we need a proper address, so our personal aim is to procure a permenant address , then when that is ready ,we can ask the UNDP for utilities such as computers and office equipment etc… this is an example and we are open for suggestions.
I forgot to mention that three cities are concerned in this , other than Beirut there is Tripoli and Sidon.
we would like to get your feedback either on the official site”medawar.net” or on facebook “medawars all over the world” .
