Atayeb el Rif Program

Hospitality News Magazine


The Atayeb al Rif program was featured in the April - May 2017 edition of Hospitality News Magazine.  The magazine discussed Atayeb al Rif's commitment to creating income generation opportunities for rural women in Lebanon.  The program is a hub for over 40 women-owned rural cooperatives.  It discussed the types of products they produce (such as mouneh), and how the organization got started with the SMART project.  


Atayeb is currently not only supporting a network of rural coops, but they also run their own production projects.  For example, they are currently working on the "Sustainable Opportunities for Fair Trade Activities in Rural Areas"; a three-year project funded by the US Middle East Partnership Initiative, and implemented in partnership with Fair Trade Lebanon.  To learn more about the Atayeb al Rif program, check out the Overview page, or "Our Projects" below.
