Description

As the first non-profit cooperative specialized in food products marketing, the mission of Atayeb Al Rif (AAR) is to provide agricultural capacity-building for rural women in Lebanon, with a concentration on the dry-land areas. They have provided over 200 training sessions to our more than 40 cooperatives targeting over 2000 women in locations across the Lebanese territory which concentrated on agricultural training, food production and quality controls standards, and marketing. The purpose of AAR is to enable women to own and run local farm cooperatives through capacity-building methods such as aid in farm rehabilitation, educational training session, and marketing development for their artisanal products.
