Terms of Reference for the sub-contraction of “External Support for the development of a Communication and Dissemination Plan” for SIRCLES Project

Project Background

The Mediterranean’s high unemployment rate, especially among the youth & women, has serious economic & social repercussions, which matters not only for the countries individually, but also has wider implications. At the same time, the area suffers from a combination of different environmental challenges that further affect peoples’ livelihoods. Considering the complexity of the situation, MED countries need to consider new approaches that address these challenges integrally.

SIRCLES -Supporting Circular Economy (CE) Opportunities for Employment and Social Inclusion- is a far-reaching project that contributes precisely in that direction, with ambitious goals & clear benefits for the MED Sea Basin.

The project provides marketable skills for the future and new job opportunities in the CE and bio-waste (BW) management sectors for NEET & Women. The recognised potential of the CE sector to create jobs and boost the economy, whilst safeguarding the environment (EC and ILO), has encouraged a large partnership of social inclusion stakeholders and organisations from the civil society, public and private sectors coming from Greece, Italy, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, Spain & Tunisia.

In all these countries, NEET & Women will be offered tailor-made trainings on BW management, entrepreneurial and soft skills, as well as job opportunities along the BW loop in separation, collection, composting and farming.

SIRCLES will deliver CE business models serving as a showcase to be scaled-up and replicated in the PP regions & beyond, contributing towards having a more inclusive and environmentally sustainable growth. The development of capacities along with job insertion and the engagement of local entities will ensure sustainability beyond the project duration. CE is in the process of evolution & this project will help in providing the necessary empirical evidence needed for informing policy-making and developing further this inclusive economic model.

Project name: Strengthening Exports of Lebanese Fruits and Vegtables to European and Regional Markets funded by the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

Child labour is prevalent in the agricultural sector especially that it occurs in a family farming concept in Lebanon and in most developing countries. Some children are subjected to the worst forms of child labour and are deprived from all their rights. Low-socioeconomic status force families sometimes to rely on child labour for coping mechanism. Other factors may lead to child labour such as lack of law enforcement, illiteracy and cultural influence. Accordingly, and under the scope of this project, RMF is tackling the socio-economic conditions (poverty) and education. By enhancing the sustainable income for families and creating job opportunities, families will be motivated to enroll their children in schools. This is one of the added values of having a large number of people engaged in income generating activities on the project. From the education perspective, RMF is tackling it in two ways,

whereby the project showcases a successful complementarity between the RMF Education & Human Development and Agriculture & Rural Development departments to support vulnerable children involved in all kinds of labor through basic literacy and numeracy classes that will build the child’s skills as well as vocational training aiming to transform child labor into decent work. Zero tolerance to taking away a child’s right is not an option, it is a must.

A healthy, happy and empowered child grows up to be a change-maker. Children grow up to be what their parents and communities allow them to become. This is why everyone must take action to improve children’s welfare and especially in areas of social instability and difficulty. RMF has through the Education and Child Protection Special Project worked with underprivileged local & refugee children on basic literacy and numeracy courses and homework support to ensure that no child is left behind. 80 youth aged between 15 and 18 are empowered with vocational skills as coffee training with barista, beekeeping, soap making, and others, which improved their conditions and well-being.

At the Rene Moawad Foundation, we believe that every child has the right to learn and be engaged in educational activities regardless of his age, gender and nationality.

Our aim is to secure a child friendly environment, where children can reach education without being at risk of any kind, such as violence, abuse, neglect or exploitation.

Therefore, trainings on Child Safeguarding Policy, Child Protection, and Safe Identification and Referral were delivered to our education front-liners (teachers of BLN, YBLN and FLG).

Those training enhanced the abilities of our teachers to create a safe and effective learning platform, where children can reach their right to education through online courses in Math, Arabic, French and English languages.

Through these activities, we provide the right of education for neglected and working children, in formal and non-formal education programs.
