Description: 
Sustainable Democracy Centre (SDC) carried out the project ?Post-War Bridging National Solidarity? between 2006 and 2008. The project aimed to raise awareness, break stereotypes and build bridges between the children from the north and south of Lebanon after the July War in 2006. Almost 1200 children were brought together in workshops and cultural activities in 4 camps (in the South of Lebanon Hebbarieh and Najjareieh). The overall objective was to build bridges and a sense of association between children who were not directly affected by the July War in the north and those who suffered death of family members and destruction of their homes and villages in the south.
