Tyre municipality to revive craft work and traditional industries in collaboration with USAID


The municipal head of the city of Tyre Hassan Dbouk and the representative of the Baladi programme Salam al Wa2ely exchanged, earlier this week, a memorandum of understanding between the municipality of Tyre and the USAID. Under the terms of the agreement, the municipality will receive USD 168,000 from the Baladi programme, which is affiliated to USAID, to cover the cost of a development project submitted by the municipality and which had won, along with 15 other municipalities, the national prize for development and heritage projects. The project will support five social guilds which have played an important role in maintaining the cultural and social heritage of the city in the face of neglect.  The targeted traditional industries include traditional crafts, blown glass, traditional pottery, ceramics and wooden boat making.
