OUR MODEL

The Need

In war-torn and impoverished regions, children and women are mostly invisible, lost and helpless. Decades of conflicts have left millions of refugees, women and children, marginalized, in poverty and without their basic needs. Populations of war victims have become aid-dependent. A range of health and well-being problems have been identified as systemic: psychosocial trauma, malnutrition, anemia, poor quality of education, high levels of school absenteeism, school drop-out rates and early marriages. High unemployment rates (significantly higher for women) due to limited opportunities result in high levels of poverty and despair.

 

 

Our Solution

The Middle East Children's Institute has developed an innovative, comprehensive, child-centered community development model based on a grassroots approach and using women as agents of change.

Its 3-pillared approach seeks sustainable impact through:

 

Children centered activities are gradually funded and sustained by Women's Associations, created and empowered by MECI, which in turn participate in creating stronger communities.
