Intaj Day’etna, as the name suggests, is an initiative led by a group of women from the southern Lebanese village, Kawkaba, who produce a variety of local agricultural products. With over a decade of hard work and dedication, these women have become skilled experts in harvesting fruits, vegetables, wild zaatar, and olives and producing rose water, blueberry juice, olive oil and a variety of other Lebanese Mouneh as a wat to preserve nature’s abundance. This initiative has created over 11 job opportunities for rural women, enhanced their skill capacity and living standards and allowed them to become entrepreneurs.
Impact on society: job creation, rural development, women empowerment, entrepreneurship.
