The Necessity of Childcare Services During Women’s Economic Empowerment and Livelihoods Programming in Lebanon
Few Syrian refugee and Lebanese women participate in the labour force in Lebanon, often due to critical gender barriers: housework and childcare obligations. This is particularly true for low-income women, who participate in economic activities at lower rates than men and are often unable to afford home help. Inadequate or absent childcare services contribute to women’s economic inactivity and serve as barriers that limit women’s mobility.
The Gender and Inclusion Tip Sheets aim to support the sector partners responding to the Beirut Port explosion in promoting a gender sensitive response and ensuring that the needs of vulnerable people are meaningfully represented.
