Development cooperation in Lebanon

Norwegian People’s Aid started its work in solidarity with the Palestinian refugees in Shatila refugee camp and the surrounding Sabra area after the Israeli invasion in 1982.

NPA and its partners' humanitarian development engagement is aimed at supporting the Palestinian refugees fight for their rights. NPA’s partner organizations are especially aware of the need for support directed to vulnerable groups: disabled, youth and women, in order to strengthen their role in society and improve their livelihood.

The program focuses on strengthening human rights, advocacy and lobbying. Support is also given to partners running health related projects focusing on rehabilitation of disabled and vocational training of youth and increasing youth's job possibilities. Since 2012, support has also been directed to Syrian and Palestinian refugees entering Lebanon from Syria.
