What We Do
In this track, Benaa aims to build an open-source library containing applied knowledge on sustainable development through running three main activities: Translation, Localization and Simplification, and Dissemination.
BENAA is translating -into Arabic- the essential practical knowledge basis for all of BENAA’s activities, such as field of sustainable WASH, sustainable architecture
Localization and Simplification:
BENAA is converting and simplifying the translated knowledge into innovative and interactive materials to create interest among the target groups of this knowledge.
BENAA is publishing (online and offline) widely the prepared materials, and creating public awareness.
In this track, BENAA utilizes the translated knowledge to prepare several trainings for youth who can build on the acquired knowledge for further actions through running three main trainings: Youth Activation Modules, Technical Modules, and Impact Modules.
BENAA Activation Module (BAM)
A two-days training aims at motivating the youth to envision better and sustainable life goals, and fosters their implementation on the ground.
We are offering several workshops and trainings in our different fields of work such as Environmental Sanitation and Water Supply, Architecture and rural development, etc. based on the knowledge that we have translated.
A joint program that aims at empowering youth to start up local initiatives and projects in the field of environmental sustainability.
