Avocado day targeting women in Batroun with financial support from USAID


The USAID-run programme aiming to develop the productive sectors in Lebanon organized last week at the Batrounyat centre, the “Avocado Day”.  The event included a number of activities notably a seminar on the health benefits of Avocado and the various ways to prepare it.  This programme is implemented in collaboration with the Batroun Development and Cultural League and with funding from USAID.
The president of the Batroun league, Joumana Abi Saleh Nasr, stressed the importance of organising an “Avocado Day” especially as a way to provide women with additional information on how to utilize this product.  Speaking of behalf of the USAID, George Iphram spoke of the assistance presented by the latter to NGOs and educational institutions notably school scholarships, funding water and environmental projects as well as collaborating with various sectors namely the agricultural sector.
