National Impact's MASDAR©: Providing Quick Impact Projects (QIPs) aiming at supporting local shops & business in the affected neighborhoods to weather the explosion storm as they move from shutdown to recovery, based on customized assistance models that could empower business owners to mitigate the impact of this devastating shock and positively recover.
Providing communities in affected neighborhoods with locally produced food, emergency non-food items, and psychosocial support based on the engagement of youth in voluntarism in emergencies.
Providing the most vulnerable households in affected neighborhoods with basic shelter rehabilitation support based on identified needs.
Support small businesses in the affected neighborhoods to weather the explosion storm as they move from shutdown to recovery, based on customized assistance models that could empower business owners to mitigate the impact of this devastating shock and positively recover.
APPROACH AND MAIN INTERVENTIONS
The NATIONAL IMPACT approach will be based on lesson-learned from the team’s past and ongoing experience in Lebanon and across the world, which showed that supporting small businesses activities is a key driver for resilience, improved household income level, and recovery. In this respect, the project will focus on responding to the actual needs/demands of the markets and on promoting adequate solutions to the current socio-economic challenges faced by small businesses in the affected neighborhoods. The project main interventions/components will include:
• Mobilization and organization of targeted/affected communities: The project will adopt a participatory approach to all project activities. Awareness campaigns and workshops will be organized to inform all stakeholders of the objectives of the project and involve them in the decision-making process.
• Supporting the Sustainability of Income Generation Activities of targeted/affected communities: The project will also facilitate the repair/rehabilitation (or upgrading) of selected enterprises through the provision of cash assistance (cash for work for local labor hand) and/or in-kind grants (repair/rehabilitation materials and small machinery). Resources provided to support these activities will contribute to progressive recovery of local markets, increase commercial productivity and local supply, and diversify the economic base in project targeted areas.
