The Bread Maker of Deir Kanoun, Lebanon
The Amel association - a grantee of UN Women’s Fund for Gender Equality - is helping Lebanese women achieve financial independence by enhancing their ability to produce and commercialize products in national and international markets. MENNA, meaning ‘from us’, is the name of the brand developed for the products created through this initiative. In Beirut, a shop was recently opened to sell the women's handmade products. This initiative is also reaching refugee and migrant women from Egypt, Iraq, Sudan, Palestine and Syria.
