Forum ZFD Director Visits LOST and Attends a Focus Group in Ein

On July 16th, 2015, Oliver Knabe, the director of Forum ZFD worldwide, along with his senior team in Germany and Lebanon visited LOST premises in Baalbeck, Bedneyel, and Ein. He also attended a focus group for local stakeholders in Ein where participants mapped the priority needs of the local community.

This timely visit of forum ZFD to LOST came to assess the process of a longstanding and productive partnership between the two NGOs. This partnership aims at the establishment of local mechanisms of non-violent conflict transformation and decision making at the local level. Such mechanisms will engage key representatives from the hosting community and Syrian refugees in the promotion of social cohesion and co-existence in four of the largest cities in Baalbeck- Hermel region.

On a related note, the two entities finalized the visit of a senior delegation from the two organizations to Berlin, Germany to participate in a conference explaining the fruitful outcomes of this partnership and its impact on the local community.
