Supporting Helem Community Centre

  • Start date: 18 September 2014
  • End date: 17 March 2015

Initiative summary:

In addition to advocating for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexuals and Transgender (LGBT) rights in Lebanon, Helem runs a community centre for LGBT citizens.

EED is providing bridge funding to ensure that the non-registered organisation can continue to run the centre and that its director can step up advocacy and fund-raising efforts in the coming months, until they receive core-funding – expected in 2015.
