ImPOWER, A YOUTH-LED INITIATIVE
ImPOWER ( Youth-led initiative ) – A Project to Educate, Engage and Empower Youth, is being implemented by SIDC since 2019 in partnership with the National Mental Health Program at the Ministry of Public Health and UNICEF. This project targets youth aged 10-24 years and aims to address prevention from risky behavior on all the levels of the socio-ecological model in a more integrated & participatory approach that is focused on the well-being of the youth in Lebanon.
