Music & Resilience develops music resources within psycho-social, health and cultural frameworks, as a protection factor for the young generations of the Palestinian and other refugee communities living in Lebanon

in Lebanon

Music & Resilience is an international cooperation project in which the Associazione di Promozione Sociale Prima Materia (PM, Italy) works in collaboration with the Palestinian-Lebanese partner National Institution of Social Care and Vocational Training (NISCVT, Lebanon, Arabic name Beit Atfal Assumoud).

The project was created in 2011 to support and develop psycho-educational resources to protect the well-being of children and adolescents who are born, live and grow up in traumatic conditions in the intolerably restrictive environments of Lebanon’s refugee camps. • read more
