The Furniture Project (Lebanon)

The Furniture Project is an initiative that has the objective to create sustainable livelihoods through improving job opportunities in the furniture sector, in particular in the host communities affected by the refugee influx in Northern Lebanon. In addition, the project aims to foster social cohesion by gathering carpenters from the Northern region to get trained, evolve and innovate together. Through the generous fund of the Japanese Government, in partnership with the Ministry of Industry and in collaboration with the General Directorate of Vocational & Technical Education, the project has succeeded in upgrading the furniture producers’ equipment in Northern Lebanon, building the capacity of the carpenters and youth in Northern Lebanon and facilitating market access.
