How it began
Nabi Chit lacks a green venue where public gatherings can take place.
How it worked
The project allowed the local community to have a space for outdoor activities. The garden also included a recreational facility for children, such as slides and swings.
It is important for children to always stay active, as it is important for both their mental and physical growth.
In Nabi Chit, children and young people used to play on the roads and in unsecured places due to the inexistence of a suitable public space. The village needed a garden where nature and safety are merged so that the children can play and adults can interact and spend quality time together.
In 2010, Live Lebanon collaborated with the humanitarian organization SODERU to create an inspiring public garden that appeals to the children and adults of Nabi Chit and the surrounding villages. The project allowed the local community to have a space for outdoor activities, and the garden included a recreational facility for children, slides, swings and rockers.
The 12,000 inhabitants of the village were given access to a natural setting where they can socialize and enjoy a wide variety of playing experiences.
