Understanding the challenges and risks faced by children and
youth in Lebanon is key to ensuring their well-being. This plays a major role
in improving policies, which will benefit them in the long term, and take Lebanon
to the next level of its Social-economic development.
U-report-Lebanon provides an opportunity to young people to participate in issues that matter in their lives. They are engaged by regular polls through WhatsApp and Facebook. These polls focus on issues such as education, health and employment. Results can be used to inform decision-making by the Government, Youth Union and the Parliament. It is an interactive way to bring the youth and the Government closer together.
“It is important that young people receive attention and support from the Government. This platform gives youth the opportunity to express their aspirations. They will be able to better share their thoughts and participate in those aspects of social life that are most important for them, and receive feedback.
