Stand for Women is proud to have Alfanar Venture Philanthropy as a partner in the Marion Fund. Alfanar is historically a strong supporter of social enterprises. After the devastating Beirut explosion they have dedicated funds to alleviate small businesses & has pooled efforts with Stand For Women to restore some women-owned stores.
In order to repair the core & shell of our joint beneficiaries, Alfanar has contracted BEDCO, which employs youth from Tripoli Beb El Tebbeneh and Jabal Mohsen neighbourhood. These young men are using the professional skills they acquired through March Lebanon Beb El Dahab program and the repairs they executed were awesome & greatly appreciated by the women business owners.
