SARWA – Social & Educational Farm by Bassma

BASSMA is addressing vulnerable Lebanese families' needs through SARWA, a social and humanitarian initiative focusing on rural development, agriculture, capacity building, job creation, sustainability, food security, education, eco-tourism, and food heritage.

Initiated in 2020, the project involves establishing an educational and social farm that engages in agriculture and agrifood activities, including an educational kitchen and a hen house, focusing on local product production.

All produced products are natural and organic and designed to prioritize families' health.

BASSMA is implementing the SARWA agricultural and agrifood project to provide food security to thousands of Lebanese families living in poverty in the rural Bekaa region. The project aims to cook 1,000 cooked meals daily and distribute them to Lebanese families in Zahlé, Taalabaya and Taanayel.
