Makhzoumi Foundation organized on June 21, 2017, a day for skills training sessions at RHSU-Jnah including four different trainings (cookie-making, chocolate molding, ceramics-making, and flower arrangement) as follows:
1- Cookie-making training session attended by 34 beneficiaries
2- Chocolate molding session attended by 36 beneficiaries
3- Ceramics-making attended by 35 Females-10 Males.
4- Flower arrangement attended by 40 beneficiaries
The workshop aimed at celebrating “Eid Fitr” by developing beneficiary skills in the different sessions provided in an entertaining atmosphere. The multicultural environment of the various sessions promotes communication and tolerance between different nationalities, ethnicities and genders; each session was attended by a constituent of Syrian, Iraqi, Sudanese, Somali, and Ethiopian nationals in addition to Lebanese people from the host community.
The different trainings transferred basic skills and information from different crafts that might be turned into a career or a business if the beneficiary decided to build upon those principles and develop their skills. Even if the beneficiaries have no career or business goals, the skills acquired can be used as an inexpensive way to bake or decorate for their own families in different occasions.
