Projects & sustainable development

Sustainable development projects have always been our objective. CIFA has initiated training programs for the unemployed, which has opened the door for new opportunities.
CIFA has initiated micro-credit options to enable individuals to set up their own enterprises, thus creating long-lasting partnerships and a loyal work environment. These enterprises can commence with a micro- credit for a jeep to use as a transport for tourists.

CIFA has also funded micro-credits to homeowners and given them the opportunity to open their homes as bed and breakfasts for incoming tourists thus providing them with a sustainable and lasting income for generations to come.

CIFA collaborates with Cyclamen and TLB Destinations on establishing programs and events to promote Lebanese heritage.
