Lynne Nehme, a 22 year old from Rahbe, has been exposed throughout her childhood to two different cultural and gastronomic Lebanese experiences. Her maternal grandmother is from Chebaa while her paternal grandmother is from Rahbe in Akkar.

Her project is inspired by her childhood memories and includes creating a series of weekly workshops which involve day-trips for tourists, foodies and culture enthusiasts to experience cooking, food tasting and recipe exchange in different parts of Lebanon while engaging with the elderly and local hosts in each area.

Emneh and Eugenie are the names of Lynne's grandmothers who have inspired her project!

Funds raised online reach up to $500 per project while UNICEF covers the remaining amount up to $1,500 for youth to pilot their projects. Viable projects will be selected by a panel of experts and will proceed to receive further coaching, mentorship, and funding upon successful completion of their pilot initiative.

100% of your donations will go towards funding the project or team of your choice.
