Today there are 2 million refugees in Lebanon, and we cannot pretend they don't exist. They live on the sidelines but they are part of our lives, just as we are a major part of theirs... The way we deal with these women, men, children, doctors, musicians, engineers and artists- is just a reflection of our own humanity. They did not want to leave their homes, friends and everyone they loved. If we could be a safe refuge for them, shelter from the storm of bullets and bombs.... they may just be able to hang on to their hopes and dreams and keep them alive. Hope for a better tomorrow. Wars are temporary and soon the sun will shine again. We are all equal citizens of the world. We are all refugees to each other. A special thank you to the Shams Network and the Educational Department of the Fondazione Merz @edu_fondazionemerz @fondazionemerz for coordinating a 3-day workshop in which the children created sculptures out of recycled materials, implementing the values of care for Mother Earth by way of art!! A big thank you also to Ziad Abi Chaker @ziad_abichaker for the recycled material we used. #healinglebanon #beitbeirut #peace #war #love #refugees #quietrevolution #fondazionemerz #libanart #art #recycled #children #workshop #makeartnotwar #lebanon #shamsnetwork #humanity #syria

What if we told you that you can visit a 120 year old Lebanese home filled with a wide variety of art and artisanal, traditional, ethnic products made by marginalized and talented middle eastern artists? Everything is cruelty-free, organic and nature-friendly. How does that sound!? We are an inclusive platform which hosts artisans and craftspeople from different walks of life under the same physical and virtual roof. We support and promote these artisans because we believe in social business. We believe in cruelty free production and fair pay. #shamsnetwork #startup #socialentrepreneurship #socialbusiness #supportsmallbusiness #handmade #socialchange #artcollective #artistsofinstagram #bekind #thinkhuman #crueltyfree #organic #beirut #beirutconnected #beiruting #MENA #middleeast #gallery #beirutart #lebanesehome

chams.network. Are you a fresh graduate searching for some hands-on experience before

Are you a fresh graduate searching for some hands-on experience before kickstarting your career? Or maybe you are searching for what it is that you love to do? Either ways, an internship with shams is fun, stress-free and most importantly, meaningful. We all hate long office hours, hence we barely have any. A lot of the work is home-based. You will be visiting and working in many areas including Beirut, Bchamoun, Bekaa and occasionally Tripoli. We are looking for someone who is outgoing and talkative, to promote our artisanal products at HeartMade. This includes attending events and exhibitions, reaching out to new artists and artisans and boosting HeartMade's social media presence. This someone will also assist us in promoting our own services as a humanitarian communication agency. He/She must be familiar with creating content, writing short success stories and the occasional long boring emails. The best candidate is an open minded and passionate person who keeps a look out for opportunities and shares our vision of helping those who cannot help us in return. We work with displaced and vulnerable communities, our candidate must be aware of the sensitivity of this field. What do you get in return? An internship certificate from an official registered institution. A chance at employment if you do impress us. Basic compensation fee. Free merch granted you don't over do it 😉 All you need to do is send us your C.V + 1 reference letter (from an educational supervisor or an employer) and make sure to include at least one extra reference with contact info. . . . . . . . . . . . #beirut #beirutconnected #shamsnetwork #internship #internships #socialentrepreneurship #socialbusiness #recruitment #beirutjobs #careergoals

Je viens juste de rentrer du Liban, où j'ai animé un atelier recyclage. Merci à Shams Network pour l'opportunité de travailler avec les réfugiés syriens accueillis au Liban. Merci #satab pour les jolies rubans ! Ma mission était d’apprendre aux enfants du camp de Chatila et leurs familles du Shouf comment recycler les vieux vêtements en tapis, tout en tissant des liens entre les générations et entre les enfants des différents âges et sexes. Je reviens inspirée par leurs créativités et leurs amours. #atelier #recyclage #enfants #refugees #refugies #shamsnetwork #tissage #weaving #rug #carpet #tapis #adelacoman #upcycle

Women are born free to choose what to do with their bodies. When to get pregnant and when not to, to abort or not to. Only a woman can decide this. Not her "male guardian" nor her community. Thousands of Syrian refugee girls and women are forced into marriages due to forced migration and livelihood conditions. We must stand by them through providing dung safe options, access to information and protection. وحدها الامرأة تقرر ماذا تفعل بجسدها. الحرية الإنجابية حق انساني. هي حرة ان تقرر ان تنجب او لا تنجب ، قرارها وحدها، ليش قرار الرجل ولا المجتمع . #HeyaByShams #socialentrepreneurship #womenempowerment #advocacy #awareness #women #SRHR #womenrightsarehumanrights #feminsim #humanrights #followus #shamsnetwork

We organized a full day workshop under the theme of "Gender-Based Violence" at our Befriend Me safe space in Lebanon. Displaced Syrian and Palestinian children are exposed to high levels of GBV and gender inequality, be it at the refugee camps or at public schools. Gender-based violence is violence that targets individuals or groups on the basis of their gender. Gender-based violence is any act that results in, or is likely to result in, physical, sexual, or psychological harm or suffering against someone based on gender discrimination, gender role expectations and gender stereotypes. Gradually we will be exposing our children to concepts such as gender identity, gender equality & equity and much more!

The toys we play with, the scents around us, the furniture, the sounds and every little detail, all are elements which shape us and make us who we are. These children live in urban refugee camps, with no infrastructure or sewer system, random and fault electric wiring and electrified walls, traffic and slaughterhouses. It is a disaster and inescapable. That is why, we decided to rent a bus and take 50 children outside the camp everyday to a suburban area. They enjoy clean air and are surrounded by a burst of color!
