General Description

WeWorld-GVC, recently constituted from the merger of two NGOs, is an Italian secular and independent organization working since 1971 in international cooperation and humanitarian aid. Present in 29 countries with 128 projects, WeWorld-GVC operates in the following areas of assistance: human rights (gender equality, prevention and combating violence against children and women, migration), humanitarian aid (prevention, emergency relief and rehabilitation), food security, access to water, health and hygiene, education, global citizenship education, quality teaching and international volunteering. WeWorld-GVC works mostly with girls, boys, women and youth, actors of change in every community for a fairer and more inclusive world. Supports people overcoming emergencies and guarantees a life with dignity, opportunities and a better future through human and economic development programs, in the framework of the 2030 Agenda. Joining the WeWorld-GVC team means being part of the development of a dynamic organisation where the contribution of each staff member is promoted and valued, working together towards the collective achievement of shared goals and vision. At present, the main donors are Italy (AICS), the EU (DG ECHO), UNICEF, OCHA, and Belgium (DGD).

Working context

WeWorld-GVC started operating in Lebanon in 2006 with a LRRD approach, supporting the reconstruction and development of the rural socio-economic fabric. Since 2012 and the onset of the Syrian crisis, WeWorld-GVC has provided humanitarian assistance in WASH, Shelter, Protection, and Basic Assistance to refugees living in the Governorates of Baalbek-Hermel and Akkar. To alleviate the stress on the host communities’ infrastructure and services and to prevent social tensions, WeWorld-GVC’s interventions compounded support to Lebanese institutions in their delivery of public services (education, waste collection, and water services) to both the local and refugee communities. With the deterioration of the socio-economic situation in Lebanon, WeWorld-GVC increasingly focused to strengthen the population’s resilience, enhancing the communities’ capacity to find, within their fabric, the skills and resources necessary to grow in a self-sufficient manner.

WeWorld-GVC’s current interventions focus on:

  1. Increasing social stability and resilience, improving the conditions of access to public education through the renovation of school buildings and the implementation of non-formal education activities
  2. Improving access to water resources and sector governance, contributing to the strengthening of the four regional Water Establishments and to the efficient organization of potable water services and irrigation
  3. Fostering protection of vulnerable populations, providing cash-based and in-kind assistance (Cash for Work, Food Distributions, Basic Assistance, etc.) to the most vulnerable Lebanese and Syrian households
  4. Promoting rural economic development and livelihood opportunities, focusing on the most promising agricultural value chains, supporting cooperatives and local institutions, and adopting a holistic territorial approach
